Short intro

“Rebooting as the Best Remedy” is a book dedicated to rebooting, currently there is no such
book on the market. Yet in China there a large number of people in need of rebooting as many
people are suffering from the physical symptoms from excessive masturbation. Many people
can be compared with the frog in the boiling pot, oblivious of the fate to what masturbation
would lead them.

This book serves to point out a clear path towards rebooting, in helping to help people to quit
masturbation in a professional manner, quitting the habit of masturbation and restoring purity to
the individual.

The author has suffered from the symptoms of excessive fapping for well over a decade and
has talked with over ten thousand brothers. After having read over 10000 individual cases and
seriously studied the topic of rebooting for over 3 years the author has established a thorough
understanding of the harmful effects of masturbation and have accumulated vast experiences
on how to successfully quit masturbation. With the help of this book, the reader will be able to
quit masturbation and rediscover that vital self!

Masturbation is undoubtedly harmful to the individual, this can be established by reading the
numerous cases/testimonies from the sufferers. If one only reads about the harmlessness of
masturbation, then one will become mislead by this false notion of its harmlessness theories.
The truth lies in the many discussion threads and the individual testimonies. Do not believe in
the so-called experts in their harmlessness theories, let us realize the truth by ourselves and let
us cut masturbation out of our lives forever!

My experiences after quitting masturbation for 2 years and 3 months + the 10 stages of
quitting masturbation

Foreword
Every day I return to the rebootings forums (Chinese forums) in order to answer questions,
many brothers are familiar with me by now, understandably many people have expressed
interest towards my rebooting experiences. Today I will share with everyone of my experiences
in detail. Hopefully, this will be of help to you all.
I started off on this journey like many people which was partly due to the deterioration of my
health as a result of masturbation but also due to the guilt that I felt; how could I engage in such
a filthy act?

How it started
It first started out from when I first felt pleasure caused by friction movement and it was followed
by what is best described as “once you pop you can’t stop”, I became addicted and was unable
to pull myself out, the addiction has taken hold of me. The analogy of “Once you pop you can’t
stop” is something that I see fairly often in the rebooting forums and is comparable to the
bursting of a dam. Therefore the saying that no harm is caused from moderation is very much
BS due to the fact that once you start it’s no longer possible to quit, just like the opening of the
Pandora’s box.

Physical symptoms

My history of masturbation goes back for 15 years. At the time I loved sports, aside from
prostatitis I hadn’t really experienced any discomfort in other areas of my body, although the
need to pee frequently caused me great agony for a long time. In addition, there was a great
change to my appearance in that I had severe acne, my complexion also gave me a decadent
look, my eyes were dull, eye bags started to appear below my eyes despite my youth. At the
time I also suffered from rhinitis, given the fragile state of my body and add on top the endless
exhaustion of my essence (kidney essence), my body was never fully healthy. I’ve always felt
greatly weakened after I have masturbated and felt the need to quit, after a couple weeks of
abstinence and regular exercise my body would have recovered somewhat, following the
recovery of my essence the degeneration started off anew with greater intensity. I would often
have consecutive sessions and my health took a turn for the worse.

Masturbation ruins a person in two ways; bodily and psychologically. After I’ve started to
masturbate my emotional state changed greatly, I was easily agitated, I lacked patience,
memory, concentration, and willpower all took a hit for the worse. The scary part at the time is
that I was totally unaware of the harm that masturbation was causing. I had read about the
harmlessness theory of masturbation on the magazines, this combined with the lack of
willpower to quit masturbation only served to exacerbate my confusion. I had struggled a lot in
the evil spiral of addiction but was unable to get out, the addiction carried with it a seemingly
magical power that held me firm. At the time my record of rebooting was 28 days, rebooting was
a topic that didn’t exist at the time in the media, instead, the media was filled with degenerative
material. Young people at the time lacked the proper guidance with regards to rebooting.

Because masturbation had contributed to a decline in my mental faculties, my grades suffered


as a result, after high school I was only able to get into a regular college. My decline did not halt
when I entered college but because I was sharing accommodation with other people at the time
my masturbation became less frequent. In college I frequently played basketball, there was a
period of time when my body was recovering very well, I no longer needed to pee frequently, my
complexion improved and so did my temperament, I was once again self-confident. After college
I started working and met a girl, in my proximity nobody told me that masturbation was harmful,
nobody told me about the bad karma from sex before marriage. Everything people talked about
was of a filthy nature which was reflected in the overall degenerative state of the society. The
voice of rebooting could not be heard anywhere. If you would talk to the young people today
about rebooting he would question your sanity and tell you the most important thing at hand is to
enjoy life. This is a basic weakness of people; the fact that people would not quit a bad habit
until they have hit rock bottom. At the time I was also likeminded to my peers, I didn’t think
anything was wrong about premarital sex. Now looking back I had been very ignorant and
shallow which was the very reason that I was unable to escape from my evil habit, up until my
healthy took a nosedive for the worse.

Illness precedes understanding

After I started working my life lacked rhythm both in terms of diet and in terms of rest, I would
often stay up during the nights. The pressure from work was immense and the masturbation did
not cease, this is when my state of health completely collapsed. I was diagnosed with
neurasthenia and GAD (generalized anxiety disorder). For those who haven’t suffered from
these illnesses it is impossible to comprehend what it’s like to live under these conditions; it is a
feeling of total collapse where death is preferable to life, nobody is able to understand you
except for you and those suffering from the same illness, not even the doctor knows what you’re
going through. Ever since I was diagnosed with the above I came to understand why some
people prefer to choose the route of suicide. This is because suicide is a means of escape. At
the time I also had thoughts of suicide, luckily I didn’t put those thoughts into action. I would like
to make something clear here, and that is the difference between the emotional state of anxiety
the symptoms from GAD (generalized anxiety disorder). Any normal person may feel anxiety but
GAD is like a having combination of a myriad of strangely bodily symptoms coming at you
incessantly, this is hell on earth where death is preferable to life.

After having been diagnosed with GAD I quit my job, I would spend my days chatting with
people suffering from the same conditions. Around the same time is when I started to study
TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) on my own, I listened to a variety of gurus and read huge
volumes of books, I also came into contact with Buddhism. Through the countless conversations,
I’ve had with my fellow patients I’ve come to reach an understanding: this illness (GAD) share
an intricate connection with masturbation and the habit of frequently staying up at night. I started
to gather case material/testimonies from fellow sufferers numbering in the thousands,
afterwards I started to gather material from sufferers with a history of masturbation, also
numbering in the thousands, I’ve studied the material for several years and was able to find
answers in TCM (traditional Chinese medicine). Answers could also be found in Western
medicine. The harmlessness theory on masturbation is no longer up to date, the newest
research in Western medicine is consistent with TCM. For example, when Beckham broke his
bones, his physician recommended him to not engage in any sexual activities for a period of 3
months. According to TCM: “Kidneys govern the bones, from bones, arises marrow”. Modern
science has also observed that the life expectancy of an animal is connected with the times that
the animal engages in procreational activities. This is consistent with the TCM view that a low
essence precedes illness and the relationship between essence and longevity. When our bodies
are healthy we are not hit by regrets, that’s why when we talk to a healthy person the message
will not register with the person. But once the health has failed the view of that person would
naturally change and agree with your views regarding rebooting. Many brothers (Chinese
brothers) suffer from hair loss, when hair is plentiful one will not think about rebooting, but once
hair is lost it’s already late because the person will need several years to recover. I have also
suffered from hair loss, the condition ceased and my hair density gradually improved once I’ve
started rebooting.

It was suffering that started my journey towards rebooting. I’m now a believer of Buddhism and I
study/research Buddhism on my own. I now realize that having a faith gives one tremendous
spiritual strength. In my former self, I would brush spirituality it off as superstition because it’s
not science. However, I no longer think that way. To my knowledge, Isaac Newton and Einstein
both had religious beliefs. Einstein was very fond of Buddhism. Many scientists have a religious
faith. At the moment I’m not only a believer of Buddhism, but also a believer of TCM, Qigong
and healthy living in general. Qigong is a learning in itself and helps greatly in the recovering

Page | 6
process, especially when it comes to practices such as holding the horse stance and meditation
and thus helping to recover the essence of the body. I would also recommend Taichi boxing.

Recovery status

Many people are interested in knowing the degree to which I have recovered. Therefore I will try
to be more detailed in my response. The most popular question that I receive on the internet
forums is the question of whether it’s possible to recover and how long it will take.
My answer is this: recovery is certainly possible. As to the time it takes it will vary from person to
person because we all have different physiology. Normally the person who practices healthy
living and who loves physical exercise will enjoy a speedier recovery.

Masturbation causes injury to both the both and the mind. According to TCM if the mind is not
healthy the body will not be healthy and vice versa. Therefore if you masturbation your mind is
sure to suffer, as your mind will not find a relieve this will in turn cause injury to the body, this
then leads to a vicious circle. Learning rebooting is an experience and metamorphosis, it is a
promotion of one’s overall state. In mastering rebooting, one will be in control of their own fate
and not bound by the shackles of desire and thus unable to free oneself until the total
deterioration of one’s health. I have encountered countless brothers that are suffering from
neurasthenia, incredibly many, I myself was an example. Many brothers are also suffering from
the obsessive-compulsion disorder as well as generalized anxiety disorder. Actually these
problems are all quite similar where the difference only lies in their orientation. What’s in
common is the amount of agony causing physical symptoms. Let’s now talk about my recovery
process.

Physical recovery:
After having gone through rebooting for 1 year my GAD (generalized anxiety disorder)
symptoms disappeared. During this year I have exercised regularly and paid attention to my
body while at the same time stayed away from any forms of medication. During a previous half
year period, I was dependent on a form of medication and it was a painful experience. Once a
medicine loses its potency the doctor would give you another one to replace it. Normally a
patient suffering from generalized anxiety disorder is skeptical of the doctor because many
people have had the experience of being falsely diagnosed; the doctor treating the sufferer as a
client instead of a patient with the first priority of making money instead of prioritizing the well
being of the patient. After rebooting, my experience with frequent urination and waist/lower back
pain also disappeared along with a large variety of physical symptoms. From my studies in TCM
I’ve come to realize that a low kidney essence is the cause of many a disease. When your
kidney essence is strong, illnesses will naturally be repelled. Previous when I suffered from hair
loss I would lose a handful of hair every day. According to TCM: the level of essence present in
the five viscera and six bowels is reflected through the eyes. One can therefore gauge a
person’s overall health by just looking into his eyes. The essence is stored in the kidneys and
the five visceras and six bowels transform that essence into qi (energy). If the kidneys are
weakened the five viscera will naturally become weakened, the effect of which will be visible in
the lifelessness of the person’s eyes. Another thing is that the strength of my grip also become
firmer, the strength of the grip is often a reflection of the state of the liver, TCM: the strength of
the liver is in the grip, the stronger the grip the stronger the liver qi. The liver and the kidneys
share the same source, meaning when the kidney water element is insufficient, the wood
element of the liver will become dry, and the symptom is that the person will become easily
irritated and angered, another symptom is revealed by the weakness of the person’s grip.
Previously I suffered from poor sleep in the form of insomnia and excessive dreams. After

Page | 7
having quitted masturbation for over 2 years my sleep quality had vast improved. The usual
symptoms of the GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) such as muscle twitching and bodily
convulsions have disappeared completely. My tinnitus also healed itself. TCM: kidneys
revitalizes the ears. Many brothers suffer from tinnitus, after half a year of rebooting tinnitus
naturally disappeared. Today I feel as if I’m a whole new person reborn into this world.
Previously I was bounded up by my masturbation habits, it’s only now that I’ve come to
experience the real feeling of freedom which is not to be confused with the freedom in
indulgence, for the freedom to indulgence will only lead to one result and that is suffering.

Psychological recovery:
Because I engaged in masturbation I felt inferior and become more autistic and even had
tendencies to self-inflict injuries. Because I was unable to quit masturbation I hated myself for
being useless and had the urge to self-slander. Because of masturbation, my physical
appearance became uglier, many brothers relate to the same opinion that their physical
appearance became uglier after they started to masturbation. This kind of feeling is not false. If
your vital essence is lost, how can one not turn ugly? This is comparable with a deflated ball,
once it’s deflected it is no longer able to bounce and is rendered useless. The same concept is
applicable to us as people, once the vital essence of the body is depleted, the physical
appearance will immediately take a hit and as a result, we will feel inferior and decadent. This
types of changes to the appearance have been thoroughly studied in the discipline of face
consultation in TCM. The face is like a mirror for the five vital organs of the body. When the
organs become weakened this will naturally be reflected on the face. One that understands this
discipline of TCM this will immediately be able to tell a person’s state of health by looking into
his eyes. Ever since I’ve quit masturbation I began to practice body strengthening Qigong, I
learned to take care of my body and exercised frequently and in the process build up my vital
essences, today my complexion has completely been restored to a healthy state. Previously
one could describe my appearance with one word: dim. Today I’m once again lit up as a person.
The earlier tendencies I had towards feeling inferior, self-inflicting injuries and autism have
naturally disappeared. I feel like a new person and completely fearless. Oftentimes a person
that is deficient in kidney essence is fearful and is easily angered, this is because kidneys
govern anger and anger injure the kidneys. In my case studies, I’ve noticed that many brothers
have become more fearful of life, this is a common phenomenon with those people who
frequently masturbate. When I now come face to face with a mirror all I see is a confident, joyful
and healthy person, the old me which was decadent, wretched and ugly has all but disappeared,
the type of ugliness that I’m describing is an ugliness reflected in the flesh and the soul, this is
the fruit of the evil deed brought about by masturbation.

Experience with success

I’ve now stayed clean for over 2 years, this is owing thanks to the increased understanding.
Previously I’ve failed countless times in trying to stay clean, at the time nobody was guiding me.
Nobody was guiding me because I was unable to receive the guidance; I was ignorant in the
knowledge of quitting masturbation, of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and of Buddhist teachings,
All I knew was the brute force way. I thought that I could rely solely on willpower to stay clean. In
reality, success is very hard to come by through relying on willpower alone. Instead, one must
start by purifying the heart/mind, this will then tackle the root of the issue because the mind
controls the hands as well as the action of masturbation. If there is a lot of filthy thoughts floating
around in your subconscious mind, you will naturally gravitate towards masturbation. Therefore
we must work on purifying our thoughts, through the repeated study of rebooting material, the

Page | 8
repeated study will strengthen our virtue and over time the habit of masturbation will cease to
exist.

The first step of quitting masturbation: to change one’s thoughts. This is like quitting a drug
addiction, upon entering a drug rehab center the first step is to introduce the patient with correct
knowledge in understanding the harmful effect of drugs and cleansing the mind with all
erroneous thoughts and beliefs. Many brothers have repeatedly failed to stay clean due to the
failure to recondition their minds, relying on willpower alone to stay clean will only work in the
short run which is quickly followed by failure. We must therefore always stay vigilant in our study
of rebooting material. Although I’ve stayed clean for over 2 years, I still study rebooting material
daily as well as TCM. This knowledge will act as a firewall and barrier towards masturbation,
with the firewall in place we don’t have to be as fearful. Previously I had relied purely on my
willpower to quit masturbation, my head was filled with dirty images. Nowadays through
changing my thoughts, I would not harbor a dirty thought throughout the entire day, without the
thought there can be no masturbation. Therefore I wish to point out a path for everyone so as to
minimize the number of detours. I have studied many successful brothers, without except all of
these people were adept at cleansing their thoughts. When you are conversing with these
people, they will have lots of knowledge to share with you; while they are sharing this
knowledge with you they are simultaneous reinforcing their own understanding which helps
them in the process of staying clean. Final word: in order to become successful in quitting
masturbation one must completely rewire the thoughts, otherwise failure is to follow.

I have studied the process of masturbation addiction as well as in other areas such as addiction
towards drugs, quitting drugs, smoking, gaming, shopping. The process of addiction is similar to
that of being allergic in that there can be many stimulants, this is why it’s so important to
surround oneself with a clean environment. Addiction can be grouped into two categories,
physical addiction, and psychological addiction. The human addiction mechanism is closely
related to dopamine. Dopamine being a neurotransmitter is responsible for communicating
information between the cells, it is one of the fountainheads for the pleasure center of the brain.
Because dopamine is mainly responsible for transmitting pleasure related signals, the secretion
of dopamine is often out of balance for masturbation sufferers. rebooting must correct this
imbalance by getting rid of the addiction towards sex. Many people have a hard to stay clean
because the psychological addiction is too deep where the subconscious is filled with filthy
material. The only way to rid these filthy material is by a complete rewiring of our thoughts and
deny that material which causes the addiction. If our first reaction by looking at a beautiful
woman is arousal then we are finished. If our first reaction is indifference then that would be
correct, in time our determination will strengthen. Beautiful women is like electricity, we must
transform ourselves into insulators, beautiful women is like a magnet, we must turn ourselves
into a wood. Remember, you are in control of your desires and not the other way around, you
will not become the slave to your desires.

The formula

In my years of research I’ve arrived at the following formula: staying up at night + long time
spent sitting down + masturbation = health is finished. If one only masturbation without the other
elements one could end up with a waist pain and frequent urination at most. However, if we stay
late throughout the night and throw long period of sitting into the equation we will be sure to
catch neurasthenia related diseases. Another thing, if you love to exercise the physical
symptoms will not be that serious and the time of recovery will be fairly quick. Staying up at
night combined with debauchery is the two most essence hurting ways according to TCM. Long

Page | 9
sitting damages the kidneys, the three mentioned factors combined will wreck havoc to a
person’s health. I hope that everybody will commit the above formula into memories as it has
been exchanged for with the painful experiences from both myself and my fellow brothers, not to
mention the medical expenses in the tens of thousands that was spent in the process.

Ways to recover

From the above reading, everybody has probably gotten an idea of the ways to recover; regular
exercise, healthy lifestyle. We need to choose a physical routine that fits our interests. In my
research into neurasthenia, many brothers have found meditation and horse-stance (a Kungfu
stance) to be helpful in their recovery, I have had personal experiences with this, the difficult
part is to find the proper technique and persistence in training.

Furthermore, replenishment via diet is also very important. The recommendations by doctor
Peng Xin is good. One of the most important topics is how to replenish the health via diet. For
the people that are aware of their weakened state of health, it is natural to inquire into the hows
when it comes to dietary replenishments. I can make it very clear to everyone that the best
replenishment is not to waste the essences, the best medicine is abstinence from masturbation.
The scale of effectiveness for replenishment follows medicine < diet < exercise. We should
therefore exercise regularly but take care not to overstrain ourselves.

There is a general misunderstanding among brothers and that is to depend on the doctor, they
think that by seeing a doctor everything will be fine. In reality this is a false notion; 30%
treatment, 70% maintenance, if you are unaware of how to maintain a healthy lifestyle, the
effectiveness of medical treatment will be severely limited. Suppose that you are taking
medicine for replenishing the kidneys but at the same time you still masturbation, this will only
have the opposite of the intended effect. Medicine will help you to recover the kidney vitality, but
if you start to fool around as you recover your kidney vitality will never become full, we must
therefore stop the “leakage” so to speak. For those brothers suffering from neurasthenia, if your
symptoms are serious I would still recommend you to seek the doctor. However, take care to
not become dependent on the medication because that is an evil spiral in itself, instead, focus
on quitting masturbation and taking care of your body.

Regarding nocturnal emissions

Nocturnal emission does not count as masturbation, frequent nocturnal emission deserves
attention however as it’s a sign that our “essence gate” is not secure, if that happens I would
recommend seeking a Chinese traditional physician. I would recommend a stretching exercise
found in the Eight Brocades yoga movements called “hands reaching feets strengthen
kidney/waist”, you can Google it. The exercise is very simple and effective. Every day I would
perform it several hundred times which helps to greatly reduce the number of nocturnal
emissions. This exercise is mentioned in many Taoist health maintaining manuals and is known
under many different names, however the principle remains the same; by stretching the bladder
meridian line found at the back of the thigh, also the bladder line and the kidney affect one
another.
Methods in reducing nocturnal emissions:
1. Do not have too thick blankets
2. Avoid diet that is too fatty or too meaty
3. Do not stay up at night
4. Do not overstrain yourself during the day

Page | 10
5. Before bed, don’t drink too much water
6. Don’t take alcohol
7. Don’t meditate immediately prior to bed

Regarding wet dreams

Many brothers are bothered by wet dreams, this is due to filthy material in the subconscious.
Sigmund Freud once said, dreams are the window to the subconscious. If your subconscious is
not clean, this will then show up in the dreams and we will be unable to control ourselves.
Therefore, the thorough cleansing of the subconscious is the key. We achieve this by the
repeated reading of the rebooting material, this needs to be repeated incessantly until we flood
our brain with it. The degree of purification will not be enough if we do not reach the mentioned
level of saturation which will create opportunities for relapses.

Regarding erectile difficulties

Due to the deterioration of one’s sexual performance, many brothers have joined rebooting in
hopes to recover quickly. First of all we must interpret and understand the signals that our
bodies are sending to us, only be doing so will we make the correct choices. Erectile difficulties
is a self-protection mechanism of the body, this is the body telling us to stop what we are doing
and begin the process of recuperation. The mechanism is similar to when we are exposed to
cold and our skin pores close. Erectile difficulties are the body telling us to stop the sexual
debauchery. Many brothers do not understand this concept, instead, they go look for filthier
material hoping for their bodies to respond, this will only make matters worse. According to my
research, people suffering from impotence and premature ejaculation share a common
experience; forceful masturbation or masturbation multiple times in close succession. It has
been mentioned in the records of TCM and I will mention it in my own words, the most important
reason for the decline of kidney essence; do not indulge too much, the more the indulgence the
heavier the price. masturbation is like shopping, we spend our health in exchange for fleeting
moments of pleasure. Many people due to their greed of indulgence have become impotent,
due to their ignorance in medicine. I hope these words is able to strike a note with the reader.

The final destination of rebooting

The purpose of rebooting is not to make you into a monk but to make you in control of your own
desires and increase the cultivation of ethics for the individual. The (Chinese) rebooting
community promotes the view of no sex before marriage, sex in moderation after marriage, this
is the correct path. This point of view is in line with the thoughts of TCM.

The 10 stages of rebooting

Stage 1: This is when we realize that masturbation is affecting our healthy negatively and we
have a thought about quitting. However, after reading about the harmlessness theories of
masturbation we are not so determined anymore, we think that masturbation in moderation
should do us no harm. This is the very initial stage of rebooting which is characterized by
ignorance and naivety. The result: failure!

Stage 2: We gain a small understanding of the harmful effects of masturbation, but not a
thorough understanding. The result: failure!

Page | 11
Stage 3: We begin to study other peoples’ experience of rebooting and we try to break our
rebooting record. Although we have managed to set a new record on the number of rebooting
days we are still unable to break out of the vicious cycle. The result: failure!

Stage 4: This is the confusion stage, after numerous failures, we start to doubt ourselves. At this
stage, we are not putting in enough of a fight, no fight no victory! The result: failure.

Stage 5: Our body gives out signals once again and it’s clear that our health has deteriorated.
Once again we make up our minds to quit and rely helplessly on the brute force method without
learning about the correct methods. The result: failure.

Stage 6: We begin to see the harmlessness theory for what it is, that it only works to trick the
“children”. This is when we experience a breakthrough in our way of thinking but we still fail to
understand why we are unable to quit masturbation. The result: failure.

Stage 7: This is the stage of understanding, gained from reading vast amounts of rebooting
articles, we begin to acknowledge spiritual teachings (such as Buddhism) which helps to
increase our determination tremendously, we break the 100-day streak. The result: still failure.

Stage 8: The thorough cleansing stage, we are starting to cleanse ourselves both consciously
and unconsciously. Once this idea has entered our subconscious we easily break the 200-day
barrier. There may come one day when we are browsing the internet and have our guard down
or we have been slack in our rebooting studies, we therefore stumble near the finishing line. The
result: still failure.

Stage 9: We are almost there now and have become even more careful, our understanding
takes on another level. We are no longer affected by dirty thoughts, what we see do not enter
our intentions, what other people sees and like we react with caution. We are steady in our
heart even amidst rough winds of thoughts. We have discarded the habit of masturbation
altogether.

Stage 10: “Nothing to begin with, how can nothing stir the dust”. We have come to the highest
stage where all things returns to simplicity, just as the “sweeping monk” from Jin Yong’s martial
art novels. Great skill is hidden in plain site, this is only achieved by the Master.

Tips: Everyone should be able to find their current stage in rebooting, just like in video games
we have our levels, once we have reached that level success will come. If our level of
understanding is not there we will have a hard time to quit masturbation, for a master there is no
difficulty, while mastery is difficult to achieve for a layman. Hopefully, everyone will continue to
study rebooting articles, the day when we find our “aha” moment is the day when we can walk
away from masturbation for good. For the few bright people with keen minds, they are able to
skip over stages just as a bright student is able to skip grades and the poor student will need to
remain in the same grade.

Season 1 [Soaring Eagle experience: the reason to repeated defeat -
slack in cleansing the mind]

I’ve seen many cases of failure during my year in the rebooting community, many brothers vow
to reboot and not long afterward they would fail in their attempt. People that relapse becomes
despondent, self-doubting and even decadent, some people may also give up. Many brothers
choose to flee, believing that rebooting is not possible for them.

The reason for rebooting is almost always due to deteriorating health, however, the attraction
towards masturbation is strong and it binds us firmly. We are the puppet controlled by a puppet
master, masturbation is like the enemy to which we suffer great casualties every time we fight
him.

After a relapse, many brothers would blame it on the lack of willpower and self-restraint, this
reveals an inadequacy in our understanding. According to my experiences, relying solely on
willpower and perseverance is extremely difficult, unless the person is some kind of rebooting
hero who would rather die than to masturbate, these people are very few in number.

Seeing people failing time and again, I’d like to point out a clear way for everyone, this method
has helped me to free myself of the control that masturbation had over my life. There is a good
saying: “Success has its ways, lest you have not yet found one.” When you fail it’s important to
consider in depth on why we fail and not to carelessly blame it on the lack of willpower, if we act
this way we will fail again in the future and thus being unable to free ourselves from this vicious
cycle.

I would like to spread a very important concept for everybody: brainwash! Everybody has
probably heard of this term before. Those brothers who managed to stay clean were all
thoroughly brainwashed.

Many people may be biased towards the term brainwash and think that it’s no good. Actually
brainwash is a neutral term that is faultless by itself, what matters is to apply it correctly.
Depending on your own understanding, brainwashing can be understood as the purification of
thoughts or the rewiring of thoughts. Many people have been looking at lots of porn, some
people have been doing this for over a decade, these people are actually brainwashing
themselves with filthy material and turning their minds into x-rated minds. Many people have
read about the harmlessness theories with regards to masturbation, this is also a form of
brainwashing where we allow erroneous beliefs to occupy our brain and render ourselves
unable to distinguish right from wrong.

Through brainwashing, a person may be totally transformed to another person, we need to


make good use of this “brainwashing” tool in order to systematically cleanse the dirt from our
minds and restore purity. People may have questions as to how to brainwash and with what. In
our daily lives, we are subjected to many forms of brainwashing regularly, only this happens
without us being aware of it; where we are fed with notions and values. According to principles
in psychologies, when we are being fed a notion for long enough, we will naturally come to
accept it. This is seen in advertising where we might dislike a certain advertisement from the
beginning but as time passes we come to dislike it less and slowly to accept it over time. This
process is a process of brainwashing.

Page | 13
We need to apply brainwashing upon ourselves, as for materials we need to look no further than
the rebooting material is posted by myself and other brothers, this will serve the basis for the
material used for brainwashing. We must purposely engage in brainwashing by constant
repetition, again and again until our brain is completely filled with brainwashing material. We
need to do this from the moment we wake up in the morning, during our spare time during the
day and in the evening. After a while, you will notice that your thoughts and ideology will
undergo certain changes where the old filthy you have already vanished and it is replaced by a
brand new sense of you. Having only a “brainwashing awareness” is not enough, we also need
the intensity. Many brothers are aware of rebooting knowledge, what they lack is “brainwashing
intensity”, if the intensity is inadequate the dosage will come out short and the results cannot be
guaranteed. The reason to why the author is able to stay clean is because he is collecting
rebooting material and thinking about rebooting every day. His mind is saturated with rebooting
material and these material act as a firewall which separates PMO from himself.

Everybody have washed their clothes before, the principle of clothes washing and brain washing
is very similar, when the thoughts are dirty our actions become tainted. Since the brain controls
the hands we should therefore not chop off our hands, we need to recognize that our thoughts
have become contaminated, the only way to become clean again is through brainwashing. High
dosage brainwashing, repeated brainwashing, and thorough brainwashing! We must thoroughly
rinse away the x-rated material and return the brain to its former state similar to a filthy shirt that
needs washing. To achieve a thorough result we must increase the intensity through repeated
efforts when the intensity has been reached the results will surely follow. By then we will have
conquered PMO and reached a stage of complete transformation, forever departing from that
vile self.

For those brothers who repeatedly fail, I hope that you can pick up the psychological weapon of
“brainwashing” to thoroughly cleanse your minds. When your minds are clean your patterns of
behavior will change naturally and victory will be assured. After you have used rebooting
material to brainwash yourselves, you should also take what you have learned and impart it to
other brothers, in doing this your own process of brainwashing will strengthen. The more you
repeat this process the clearer will the results become and with time PMO will naturally
disappear.

Season 2 [Soaring Eagle experience: the misconception in repeated
failure lies with the incorrect motive of restoring one’s sexual
performance]

Here we will talk about motives behind rebooting. When I logged on today to answer questions I
met 2 brothers that are unable to escape from their vicious cycles due to incorrect motives in
rebooting. Previously I would run into similar cases every day. This is a serious question that
deserves its own topic.

To reboot in order to recover one’s sexual performance seems quite natural when first hearing
about it. Many brothers have suffered a decline in their sexual function due to long-term
masturbation, some even have developed premature ejaculation symptoms and impotence,
others are on their way to the said symptoms. The worst part is that these people have not
realized the seriousness of the problem and act like those frogs in a boiling pot, swimming at
ease in the slowly heated up pot.

According to the [Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor]: “Illness is due to overuse!” Our body is
like a piece of machinery if we only use it and ignore maintenance, the parts will quickly wear
out and even become useless. Our body is capable of a certain degree of self-repair, this is why
after a period of rebooting we will experience certain improvement in our sexual functions. This
is the stage that is most susceptible to breaking our reboot; as our kidney essence recovers
there will certainly be reactions down there, evil thought will begin to flourish, those brothers
undergoing reboot with the desire to recover their sexual function will begin to feel restless, the
thought to “test” will arise in wanting to see the degree of recovery. It is this thought that sinks
them once again into the vicious cycle of PMO, once released it’s released and we may even
see a deterioration in our condition.

This is a typical case of incorrect motives, the root is incorrect and therefore the fruit is also
incorrect. This motive is incorrect from the very beginning and must result in failure. This is
because the reason for rebooting is to enjoy further indulgences in the future, to further satisfy
their own cravings, this motive is wrong from the very beginning. The wrong cause will surely
result in the wrong result, this will aggravate the vicious cycle making us incapable of escaping
from it.

Therefore, to establish the correct rebooting motive is the key and also the foundation. This is
comparable to the foundations of a skyscraper, the foundations must be solid and correct or
else we are building castles of sand, prone to collapse at any moment.

I advocate the following motives:

1. To restore health to the body and mind: This is the very first motive for many brothers
due to the deterioration of their health.
2. To maintain a healthy way of living according to TCM: in TCM it is recommended to
protect and cherish the essence. Studying a little TCM will further benefit our rebooting
process.
3. Religious beliefs: for example, Buddhism is against sexual debauchery and premarital
sex as well as moderation of sex post marriage.

Page | 15
Naturally, there are other commendable motives, such as to not let one’s family down and to
realize one’s dreams in life.

We must not adopt the motive of “reboot in order to recovery sexual functions”. Once we have
adopted the correct motive our sexual function will naturally recover. But if your motive is to
merely improve the sexual functions you will once again fall into the trap, this will happen by
default and has been made known from the experiences of thousands of brothers.

Hopefully, through these writings I have brought everybody beneficial food for thought, and also
a clearer understanding towards rebooting.

Feel free to contact me for any questions and I will answer them with the backing of extensive
experiences. I hope to have helped brothers to overcome their vicious cycles and in
rediscovering that bright and healthy self.

Season 3 [Soaring Eagle experience: teach you how to rid the
problem of frequent nocturnal emissions]

In this article, we will discuss the topic of nocturnal emission in depth in hopes to point out a
clear path for everyone. For those readers with a keen understanding, I believe they will no
longer be bothered with the worry of nocturnal emission after reading this article. Please read
the following passages thoroughly.
Out of all the hundreds of questions that I have answered, the topic of nocturnal emission
makes up a big share of the count. As long as you have begun to reboot, you will likely have
been troubled by nocturnal emissions. I come across this topic daily from fellow brothers, no
fewer than 3 per day, the most I have received 10 per day on this issue. It could even be said
that large portions of brothers are deeply troubled by nocturnal emissions, they have searched
far and wide to no avail and are unable to reduce the frequency of nocturnal emissions. To have
built up the kidney essence only to have them dispelled one night via nocturnal emissions is
very disheartening and troubling.

Like everyone else I’ve once made up my mind to reboot, yet I was deeply troubled by nocturnal
emission. Nocturnal emission itself does not count as breaking the reboot, but my body would
noticeably feel weakened. This especially applies to those brothers whose had their kidney
essences greatly weakened, if you add nocturnal emission to their already weakened state is
like adding frost on top of the snow. The day after nocturnal emission is when the body will feel
not up to par, some people even describes the experience of their bodies falling apart. Although
the manner that we lose our essences and qi through nocturnal emission differs from that of
masturbation, the results are more or less the same, once essences and qi have been lost the
body will feel weakened. If your body is very healthy and your kidney qi is plentiful, an
occasional nocturnal emission will not be felt. However, if the kidney qi has already been
weakened, once we have a nocturnal emission, the effect will become very apparent. As we age
the discomfort we feel following nocturnal emission will become more apparent. Furthermore,
nocturnal emission will adversely impact our determination in rebooting, although it does not
count as breaking the reboot, following nocturnal emission our stamina will noticeably decrease
like an inflated ball. TCM (Chinese Traditional Medicine) advocates “accumulation of essence
and qi” where the leakage of essence and qi is frowned upon.

In Taoism the leakage of essence is called “the leaving of the pellet”, if we take away the
essence how are we to transform it into qi? There is a saying that it takes 100 days in order to
build up the foundation during which time there can be no leakage of essences. 100 day without
leakage is a feat that is achieved by extremely few people, only those that have acquired the
way of the Tao is able to achieve this feat. Actually, breaking the 100 days is like breaking the
paper on papered tapered windows, if you know the method it is very easy, but if you don’t know
the method, it’s very hard to decrease the frequency of essence leakage, let alone the
excessive expectation of breaking the 100-day barrier. According to my research, many people
due to that they have masturbated long-term suffers from a great deficiency in their kidney qi. It
would take from half a year to 8 months before they experience nocturnal emission during their
reboot. The 100-day barrier that I had mentioned is addressed towards the second stage of the
reboot.

I was once troubled by nocturnal emission for the better part of a year, during that time I would
experience nocturnal emission about 3-5 times each month, sometimes I would experience it
two nights in a row. Although the number of times is not that great, it is, however, a great deal

Page | 17
for an already weakened body where we simply cannot afford to leak so to speak. I remember a
time when I had been recovering very well only to experience a marked decline in my physical
well being after a nocturnal emission. During this time period, I took care to record the times of
my leakages, the dates, the time, whether or not dreams were present, I had it recorded down in
detail. After a nocturnal emission, I would go on the internet to look for ways to combat it. I’ve
come across a countless number of articles and posts; medicine was mentioned as well as
different forms of physical exercise, also suggestive healing was mentioned, however, there
were no ways to decrease the frequency of the leakage. There was a time when I perplexed
over the question of whether or not the leakage is due to the “overflowing of essences”, this was
then dismissed after I discovered that there are people who are able to greatly decrease or even
to halt altogether, nocturnal emission through meditation. At the time I was thinking of how
wonderful it would be to have a master to guide me into this matter. According to my
understanding, those who have opened their small circulatory cycles according to Qigong are
able to stop the leakage. However this requires the guidance of a proper tutor, one should not
attempt this on their own due to the risk running into issues, therefore I didn’t attempt this
exercise on my own. In Qigong, by holding the horse stance one is also able to decrease the
frequency of nocturnal emissions, but to achieve 100 days of no leakage is very difficult.
Nocturnal emission in Taoism is a “hard threshold”, many people have difficulty in passing this
barrier. If this barrier cannot be passed, a substantial improvement (translator’s note: I believe
the author isn’t referring to a normal improvement upon an already weakened body, instead, it is
the total transformation above and beyond a normal constitution, like becoming a superman in
terms of health. Therefore, the 100 days threshold should not be viewed as a prerequisite to
improving one’s health, it’s the threshold towards unlocking one’s latent powers) in one’s
constitution is very difficult, because whatever we put in is leaked away like a leaking water tank
where the tank is never to be full.

I’ve now finally fumbled my way to the method, one can also say that I’ve reached an
understanding (translator’s note: in Chinese, understanding literally translates to “knowing the
Tao”. In this context, understanding should be interpreted as having the defining “aha moment”
and piercing into the truth) . Previously I came across articles dealing with similar topics but was
unable to comprehend them, this is also owing the complexity of the articles where the contents
becomes more difficult the more you read them, and if I did what was prescribed in those
articles it was easy to miss the essence and not hit the mark, and so the issue of nocturnal
emission was not resolved. An article with several thousands of words in it can often be
summarized in the last sentence. The saying goes “falseness may spread across a thousand
books, the truth is contained in one sentence”, if we are able to truly comprehend this then there
is no need to read many articles lest we become even more confused. If we are not able to
reach the understanding then the paper thin veil becomes like a mountain, if understanding is
reached, breaking the veil is like breaking through a sheet of paper.

Ever since I have arrived at the understanding, I have not had a nocturnal emission for 3
months. I could feel that my kidney qi is becoming ever more abundant and my overall vitality is
very good. Today I will pierce this paper thin veil, hopefully, everybody could pay close attention
to the below writings.

Listen, understand, and you will save money, there will be no need to take medicine and
hospital expenses could be saved.

First of all, let’s familiarize us with the concept of the “essence gate”. The essence gate is like a
dam if the dam is sturdy enough it will not become overwhelmed by the flood of water. If not,

Page | 18
nocturnal emissions will be frequent. If your gate is very sturdy, even if you have Ying deficiency
in the kidney & liver, the dam will still hold firm. The relationship can be described the analogy of
the spear and the shield if your shield is strong the spear will not be able to penetrate it despite
its sharpness. Therefore, the question of how to reinforce the essence gate, to reinforce the
“shield” is the problem that we must solve. I was able to cast off the trouble of nocturnal
emission thanks to a rhyme that I have discovered which originated from the Eight Brocade
exercise, called “Hands climbing feet sturdies the kidney and the waist”. This movement has a
very simple form, stand with both legs straight and use the hands to touch the ground. In
broadcast gymnastics (translator’s note: kids in Chinese schools do simple gymnastics
movements during school, these movements are basically like stretching and is guided by
broadcasts from loud speakers) there is a similar movement, actually, these movements are
born out of the traditional Chinese Eight Brocade Qigong exercises. Whatever you do, do not
underestimate these movements as they contain “great mysterious principles”. The said
movement, through stretching the bladder meridian line found at the backside of the thighs have
the function of strengthening the essence gates. The principle is the following: the kidney
meridian line and the bladder meridian line is reflected off each other, their functions are
connected together, qi and blood are interconnected, therefore by stretching the bladder
meridian line we are also working the kidney meridian line. Thus we are able to reinforce our
essence gate, executing the said movement is like tightening screws to the gate, once the gate
is secured, the issue of nocturnal emission is resolved. In the past I’ve encountered numerous
articles, the Eight Brocade is also mentioned in them but at the time the contents did not stick in
my mind due to my lack of understanding, I didn’t comprehend the essence of the teachings and
hence did not fully grasp the power of the movement. Now I’ve come to fully understand the
battle-tested effectiveness of the movement which far surpasses the efficiency of any medicine!
Furthermore, the exercise is very easy to execute and to repeat over time. Those with an
adequate understanding will come to treasure the movement as the most valuable asset while
those with an inadequate understanding will tend to ignore and dismiss it.

Detailed how-to

The method that I would teach everyone is: just do one of the movement from the Eight Brocade
exercises, the one that targets nocturnal emissions “Hands climbing feet sturdies the kidney and
the waist”. Persist in executing this movement properly, which means to find that stretchy feeling,
it’s important to have that correct feeling. When we are doing this movement we should feel the
bladder meridian line being stretched tighter, straightened and lengthened like a rubber band.
Once we have found this feeling we need to intensify it like tightening the screws of the essence
gate. Every day I would perform this movement 500 times before I go to bed I would do it 200
times. I would strongly recommend doing this exercise before bed which is likened to putting a
lock on the essence gate. If you do not do this before going to bed then we might experience
nocturnal emissions, this is because the essence gate might not be properly secured which can
only be secured by performing this movement. However we must take care to not overstrain
ourselves while doing this exercise, otherwise, the overtraining may lead to nocturnal emission,
we should pay close attention to this. In the beginning, many people lack the foundations, other
people may have a poor physical condition, therefore we do not need to do many repetitions in
the beginning. We could, for example, start from 30 repetitions, or do them in sets, 60
repetitions may be divided into 3 sets with 20 per set and a minute of rest between the sets. The
second day we do this we may experience pain or discomfort in the body, we only need to rest
for a couple days to return to normal and then continue from where we left off and we will not
experience further discomfort in the body.

Page | 19
Essence

Lastly, I would like to elaborate on the characteristics of the essence. Essence is a mysterious
substance, if given is able to grant life and if saved is able to preserve life. There is one
characteristic of the essence and that is essence is able to become “internalized”, through
meditational practices the essence may be transformed into qi, essence can then be returned to
nourish the brain. (translator’s note: in English, this may be called sexual transmutation and has
been expounded upon by authors such as Napoleon Hill). The saying that “Once essences are
full it will overflow” is a theory that is only applicable to the layman. Because the layman is not
cultivated in meditational practices he will be limited on the plane of “Once essences are full it
will overflow”. This is like a person believing there are only white swans in the world just
because he has only seen white swans, in reality, there are black swans as well only that they
have not yet been seen by that person.

Afterword

Once a brother has reached a certain stage in the rebooting process he will likely be bothered
with the issue of nocturnal emissions. We must learn to control the frequency of these leakages
and try to limit the frequency to no more than 3 times per month. Hopefully, I have been able to
provide guidance for those who are deeply troubled by nocturnal emissions, I hope one day the
issue will no longer come to bother you.

Success case feedback

Case 1: Previously I saw in your thread the “Hands climbing feet sturdies the kidney and the
waist” movement, this is truly a remarkable move! I have kept doing this exercise for 200 times
before bed every day and I have not experienced nocturnal emission for over 40 days. Before I
learned about this exercise I would experience nocturnal emission twice a week, what a
powerful exercise this is. However, I did fall short and broke the reboot after 44 days. I can now
guarantee to quit PMO completely and I’m full confidence.

Case 2: The first month of reboot I had nocturnal emissions 8 times which almost frightened me
to death, after reading Soaring Eagle’s article my determination is renewed. In addition, I’ve
started to practice the Eight Brocade exercises, in the second month I’ve yet to experience a
single nocturnal emission. My state of mind is pretty good now! I’m very grateful for Soaring
Eagle and the rebooting forums. I hope everybody can do as I did and walk on the path of
righteousness, together we will build a bright future.

Case 3: Masturbated for 8 years! Short, ugly and poor (translator’s note: Chinese slang for loser
basically). The girl of my dreams sleeps in the arms of another man, very hurtful indeed. After
having read Soaring Eagle’s posts I’ve come to realize that I have wasted valuable years. Today
is the 31st day of my reboot, at day 7 I had a nocturnal emission, afterward, I did in according to
Soaring Eagle’s methods and successfully controlled by leakage. Ever since the 7th day until
today I have yet to have another nocturnal emission, my dreams are peaceful and I no longer
have erotic dreams. My body clearly feels more vital, my legs are no longer soft, waist and back
ache have disappeared. My appearance has become clearer and no longer carry the wretched
look! My thoughts are clear now and my courage has returned. Now I do the things I enjoy doing
and make money towards my freedom. I finally understand this is what is called real living. The
sad and inferior days of self-rubbing is now forever behind me.

Page | 20
Case 4: I began rebooting after reading in rebooting forums. Afterwards, I often had nocturnal
emissions which irritated me a lot. I remember when it was the most serious, I leaked 7 times
within a month. When it was cold on the night I would have an emission. My body was very
irritated and felt week overall. Even during my midday naps, I experienced emission. At that
time I just wanted to die, but the will to live was very strong, so I gathered my courage and told
my mom about rebooting and the frequent nocturnal emissions. I told her that I felt very week so
my mom took me to see an old traditional Chinese doctor. I knew that doctor from a very young
age, now he is maybe 80 years old but is still working. The head of the clinic told him to come
by and sit for a while and treat some patients every day until noon. I told the old doctor about my
condition and was given medicine, the doctor told me not to be nervous and that I would recover.
Just like that, after taking his medicine I felt much better. I would have nocturnal emission twice
every month and so I no longer felt the need to do any kidney strengthening exercises and
stopped taking the medicine. After stopping the medicine the symptoms rebounded and once
again I experienced frequent nocturnal emissions. At the time I was thinking to myself how nice
it would be to no longer take any medicine and so I continued to do the exercises provided by
Soaring Eagle. Now I do it every day whereas before I was not persistent and would have
nocturnal emission every couple of days. Now I do them every day and have not leaked for
about a month or two. Hehe. Though I feel that I have a small advantage which allowed my
body to start recovery and that is ever since I started rebooting I have not broken the reboot.
The physical as well as the mental act of masturbation no longer exist in my head. That brother
who experience frequent nocturnal emissions please hold out, your bodies will be able to sense
it. If you are good to your body it will know it. Please continue with the kidney strengthening
exercise forever.

Season 4 [Soaring Eagle experience: be vigilant during the flatline
period and of the fed up mood]

Every day we have many brothers breaking their reboot, the annoyance and the disappointment
that we experience following a relapse is not hard to understand, I believe every brother have
had this experience repeatedly. From vowing to stay clean to being defeated time and again to
finally staying clean for good is a long and slow process. To change our awareness is a process
of learning, it’s a process of ever-increasing our level of awareness. In this season we will
elaborate on the flatlining period and of the fed up mood during the rebooting process.

For the brothers that repeatedly relapse, if you are familiar with TCM you will notice that there is
a pattern to the relapses. The pattern of the relapse and the “value of kidney qi” is intricately
interconnected. When you feel that your body is weak you will instinctively want to reboot. Once
you have been rebooting for a while and kidney qi will have started to recover somewhat, this is
when it’s very easy to relapse. In the beginning of the reboot, we will experience a period of
flatlining with regards to our desires, many people during this stage do not experience strong
cravings and are able to control themselves. But during the flatlining period, it’s very easy to let
our guard down and think that we have succeeded, in reality, our desires are only temporarily in
dormant. Once our kidney qi has recovered to a certain degree that is when the desires are
awakened. During this stage the relapse is often accompanied by vigorous masturbation, all our
previous efforts have gone down the drain. The period of flatline varies from person to person,
for some people that period is 3 days, for others, it can be 20 days or 60 days. According to my
understanding, the average duration of the flatline period is around 3 weeks or 21 days.
Following the flatlining period is the peak period for relapses after the relapse is the period of
regret, the feeling of doubt and regret will be quite strong at this stage.

The purpose of this article is to let everyone become aware of the flatline period. During this
period we need to increase our alertness and maintain our vigilance, we must not slack in our
rebooting studies. Only through the unceasing study of rebooting material can we increase our
understanding and our level of determination. The level of determination is comparable to when
we grind for levels in an internet game, in the beginning, our level is low and succumbs to the
temptations of the heart, once we have continuously studied rebooting material and our level of
determination have risen, the heart can no longer tempt us. If you don’t study rebooting
knowledge, no understanding will take place, the level of determination will forever remain at a
low level. And when we encounter a temptation the result is obvious; every encounter will result
in failure, when we see x-rated material we will not have any determination, once we see it our
heart begins to flutter and we click on the material, without immunity and resistance we are
finished.

[Vow to reboot] -> [flatline period] -> [kidney qi recovers somewhat] -> [peak period for relapse] -
> [period for regret]

This is the process of relapse, also known as the vicious circle. Many people cannot escape
from this circle for years or even decades. Once I was stuck in this vicious circle for well over a
decade because at the time I didn’t reach understanding, I didn’t study rebooting material nor
was I aware of how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I only knew the brute force way and the blind
way. With regards to the brute force way, I thought that I will be able to quit masturbation by
relying on willpower. In reality, the brute force way will surely result in failure because we have

Page | 22
not raised our state of awareness. The blind way is trying to reboot without the knowledge of
rebooting, the blind way will also surely fail for the same reason.

The contamination of the brain by x-rated material is similar to when a computer is infected by a
virus. When a computer is struck by a virus it will affect how the systems operate, similarly,
when the human brain is contaminated our health will have problems. Normally the areas where
problems first appear is in the urinary system, mainly in the form of prostatitis. Afterwards once
the kidneys are weakened, many illnesses will result from weakened kidneys, any illness might
appear, the decrease in our mental faculties is also very common. TCM: in the above, kidneys
are connected to the brain. Masturbation injures the kidneys and hence must also injure our
mental power, memory and concentration will both decrease. If our mental power is lacking our
studies and career will invariably suffer.

Let’s now talk about the fed up mood with regards to rebooting.

The mood of being fed up is very common during reboot, this is like being fed up with a piece of
clothing, a food dish or a cell phone. Studying rebooting material a lot can also make us feel fed
up, once we experience this state our rebooting efforts will be halved, this is why it’s important
to learn to adjust our attitude and state of mind. We need to manage our mood well, as soon as
we begin to feel fed up we need to make adjustments. Cultivate the habit of reading and
studying, study rebooting material daily without slacking, once the habit is established we will
not easily become fed up anymore. This is like a toothbrush, once a habit forms it becomes
natural if we don’t brush our teeth one day we might feel uncomfortable. Similarly, we need to
find this state of mind with our rebooting studies. Of course, we don’t have to study the topic of
rebooting exclusively, cultivating a healthy lifestyle can also be a good topic due to the similarity
it shares with rebooting. In addition, a rebooting article can be read numerous times, through
reinforcement comes new learning, the more you read the deeper the understanding will
become as opposed to dabbling into something and then stopping and forgetting.

Concluding remarks: Sun Tzu - If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the
result of a hundred battles. To reboot we need to understand how to the reboot is broken and
why we cannot escape the vicious circle, every brother should think deeply about these
questions. When you have understood our state of awareness will be raised. If we remain in our
initial level of understanding, the brute force way and the blind way till both lead to failure. Only
through continuous efforts in our studies can we arrive at that “aha moment”, once there our
state of awareness will be different, our level of determination will be raised, the distance to
ridding PMO for good will be within reach. Keep on fighting brothers!

Season 5 [Soaring Eagle experience: how to supplement the health
the right way]

Today let’s discuss the topic of “supplementing” (Translator’s note: the word supplementation in
this context can also be interpreted as to repair or to mend). Just like the question of how to quit
PMO, supplementing is a popular question that many brothers pay a great deal of attention to.
There is a good amount of misconceptions surrounding this topic, this article will now dig into
the issue in detail, hopefully, it’s of help to everyone.

Supplementing is a big topic with a deep depth of knowledge, it is not as simple as one would
think it to be. Many brothers due to their long-term habit of PMO, has their bodies greatly
weakened, their first reaction is naturally to take supplements. They tend to want to ingest
something as a supplement but because they do not know what to ingest, they will go to a
traditional Chinese doctor and then take herbal medicine to supplement their kidney qi. To
supplement is necessary, but one has to learn how to supplement with high efficiency and not
with low efficiency, it requires careful attention. No matter if we look for dietary or medical
supplementation on our own, or have a doctor

prescribe medicine for us, the foremost prerequisite to supplementing is this: the cultivation of
heart/mind must be in place. This is because once you have taken the supplements your kidney
qi will start to recover, once it has recovered then desires will appear, this is when it’s very easy
to relapse. Relapsing is equivalent to losing kidney qi, this will greater hamper the results of the
supplements. Therefore, if you are not aware of the importance in cultivating the heart/mind and
go ahead with the supplements anyway, the result will be sporadic with a mix of both good and
bad periods, the body will not have greatly recovered. We may even experience adverse side
effects due to a large number of supplements we have taken, making us worse
off. Furthermore, there will be diminishing returns in taking supplements, this is apparent once
we have taken lots of supplements where the effect is most noticeable in the beginning. And so
this is the first misconception of the topic of the supplement: only knowing how to supplement
but not the cultivation of heart/mind. Everyone should, therefore, emphasize the cultivation of
the heart/mind and the study of rebooting material. Raise the effort in heart/mind cultivation,
only through reboot studies may we increase the level of determination, with the determination
we will naturally fantasize less and even achieve no fantasizing. If we apply supplements on top
of this state of mind we will multiply the efficiency. Otherwise what we put in from above will only
be leaked from below thus preventing kidney qi from ever becoming full.

The second misconception regarding supplementation: ignoring the importance of rice in the
diet

Actually the most beneficial supplements for the essence and qi is not ginseng, deer antlers,
yam, black beans or any of the supplemental medicines, instead, we find in rice! If we imagine
the supplementation process to building a house, rice is then the foundation. If you don’t
properly eat your rice, then no matter how much other supplements you take you will not see
great results, this is because the foundation is not solid.

There are many ways to prepare rice, I would approve congee.

A masterpiece within the topic of health maintenance [Lao Lao Heng Yan] states: “Ingesting a
diluted bowl of congee every day on empty stomach is able to rejuvenate, give birth to saliva

Page | 24
and quicken digestion, the benefits is not trifling” In [Shi Zhou], the great Song dynasty poet Lou
You (1125-1210) wrote: “People far and wide studies longevity, not knowing what they study lies
right before their eyes, to obtain longevity one has only to offer congee to the Gods”.The benefit
of congee is clearly observed in the fact that Lou You has lived for over 80 years. Traditional
Chinese medicine believes that congee is able to make semen flourish, cultivate the stomach qi,
help with the digestion and nourish the entire existence.

The Tang dynasty doctor Sun Simiao (581−682) suffered from many ailments as a child and
hence took up to study medicine, combines Buddhism and Taoism wisdom in health
maintenance and lived to be over 100 years. He also advocated the intake of congee in the
morning. In addition, use Chinese medicine in making congee, using the “rice qi” and water
moisture as “medicine enhancers” and administer according to the “biological timing” of the five
viscera and six bowels to nurse one’s body and cure diseases.

Therefore, do not focus on the trees and lose sight of the forest, in other words, do not ignore
the importance of congee as the most effective means of supplementing the essence. Eat your
rice is more important than anything else.

The third misconception regarding the supplementation: blindly supplement without consulting a
traditional Chinese doctor

This misconception is very common among brothers. Some people think it’s a hassle to go to
the doctor, others are afraid of embarrassment and so on and so forth. These people may end
up looking up supplements on the internet by comparing their own symptoms against a suitable
supplement, they then go to the drugstore to buy the supplement. In reality, this method is
biased, kidney deficiency is not like catching the flu where one can just solve the problem by
picking up flu medicine at the drugstore. Kidney deficiency requires correct diagnosis, according
to TCM: Same disease, different treatment. Different treatment, same disease. Even with the
same symptoms, because we all have different physiology, the recipe might not be the same,
only after the four diagnostic methods (Translator’s note: as in looking, listening, asking and
feeling the pulse) may a correct judgment be made. Therefore, the preferred way is to go to a
well-known clinic and seek an old and experienced Chinese traditional doctor. Also, do not put
all hope in the doctor and the medicine, 30% treatment, 70% maintenance (Translator’s note:
70% of the recovery consists of maintaining a proper diet and healthy lifestyle. This is much
more gradual compared to taking medicines). If you do not study how to maintain a good health
and have not mastered the way of good health maintenance, the effectiveness of medicine will
be severely limited. For example, if you are taking supplemental medicine but at the same time
stays up at nights and have a long period of sitting, then the effectiveness of the medicine will
be very low. In addition, strong supplementation is not suitable for many people in the
weakened state. This is because a weakened body cannot handle a strong tonic. For example,
if we administer a strong tonic for kidney and spleen yang deficiency, the body will not be able
to absorb the tonic which will result in extra burden for the stomach and intestines. Therefore, it
is best to seek an experienced traditional Chinese doctor for diagnosis and not blindly
supplement on one’s own initiative.

The third misconception regarding the supplementation: no exercise.

When talking about supplementing the first reaction is what to ingest. Actually, the most brilliant
supplement is not in eating but in moving! Medicine supplement is not as good as a dietary
supplement, a dietary supplement is not as good as moving supplement. Moving supplement is

Page | 25
a very good word, exercise may help your body to recover which surpasses the healing effect of
a medicine.

Traditional Chinese medicine states that 3 Yang opens up good fortune; kindness, delight, and
exercise. Also stated is that strong yang leads to longevity, “The one strong with Yang energy is
like the sky and the sun, to lose it results in discounted longevity and brightness is lost”.
Therefore, exercise as a supplement is very effective, as long as we do not overstrain ourselves,
exercise is very beneficial for the recovery of the body. The misconception that people have is
not to exercise, people complain about their slow pace of their recovery, you only need to ask
yourself if you are exercising and whether or not you have learned how to maintain the health?
To cut out PMO alone is far from enough, exercise must be added, we must learn the way to
maintain a good health if we do all this recovery will be quick. The 3 Yang includes “kindness
raises Yang” in this is contained deep health maintaining philosophy. By doing deeds of
kindness including the release of wild animals according to Buddhism, is very beneficial to the
body’s recovery. Do kind deeds and have a merciful heart, the Yang energy will naturally
supplement itself to fullness.

The optimal supplemental method that I recommend: to sit in meditation and doing standing
exercise.

I have previously tried out many supplemental medicines, none of them equals to sitting in
meditation and doing standing exercises. Sitting meditation and standing exercises not only
replenishes vital energy and benefits the cultivation of the heart, two birds in one stone. It
doesn’t cost money nor has any side effects. Many people may think that one can run into
issues (Translator’s notes: by issues the author is referring to the adverse side effects that a
Qigong practitioner may encounter during meditation. These side effects may manifest
physically or psychologically and is not a part of the normal manifestations that occur with
regards to Qigong practice) by practicing Qigong, this does indeed occur, however, the form
that I advocate is not the form that is likely to run into
issues. I’m talking about the sitting meditation and standing exercise that is related to health
maintenance, in this no issues will occur.

The biggest supplemental medicine: no PMO! This is the best way of supplementation. If you
take strong tonics for a few fortnights, two consecutive nights of nocturnal emissions will bring
you back to square one. Therefore, having the proper supplement in place involves working
towards reducing the number of nocturnal emissions to a minimum, put an end to all factors that
may contribute towards having these emissions, combine this with proactive physical exercises
and the body will enjoy a rather quick recovery. For brothers have had with a long history of
PMO whose with a heavy overdraft of their kidney qi have been overdrafted and are showing
many physical symptoms, the question of how to reduce the frequency of nocturnal emission is
of paramount importance. One must take this question into consideration and research into it.

Lastly, I would like to fill in on the problem of prostatitis, this is one of the most commonly
occurring issues with brothers, almost everyone has encountered it. Many brothers carry
misconceptions in their minds thinking that having prostatitis is like catching a cold, that one can
simply take some medicine and hope to get well. In reality, this is completely false, there are
many brothers who has visited countless doctors and spent tens of thousands in medical bills
but are still not cured, what is the reason? In fact, if one is familiar with TCM then it is
understood that masturbation hurts kidney qi and when kidney qi has been injured then
prostatitis will appear. The doctor may heal you and help you to recover your kidney qi,

Page | 26
prostatitis might go away temporarily, but you continue to masturbation and hurt your kidney qi
once more, therefore, prostatitis is very likely to return. The relapse rate for prostatitis is over
90%. This happens because we have not grasped medical knowledge, the problem is in our
understanding. Only if we cut off PMO completely is there the hope of making a full recovery
from prostatitis. This form of full recovery corresponds to a leap in understanding where the root
of the problem has been understood. In paying attention to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and
using the kidney qi sparingly, prostatitis is unlikely to relapse. If we have not deeply understood
the problem we will have to visit the hospital frequently and spend ever more money in
diagnosing and medical expenses.

Season 6 [Soaring Eagle experience: prostatitis, varicocele,
premature ejaculation and impotence recovery]

Prostatitis and varicocele are relatively common illnesses for brothers, especially prostatitis.
Plenty of brothers suffer from frequent urination due to that PMO damages the kidneys qi. In
fact, many people also suffer from varicocele but they are unaware of it; varicocele may not
have any uncomfortable symptoms. One can find out if one has the illness by taking an
ultrasonic test in the hospital. Normally, varicocele will occur on the left side in 99% of the cases,
in other words above the left testicles. In serious cases, the varicose veins clump together in an
earthworm-like shape and can be felt by the fingers with the addition of a bulging feeling. In
lighter cases there may not be any uncomfortable symptoms present which is the form that I
had, I have had it for over a decade without knowing it myself. I found out by taking an
ultrasonic test at the hospital. Some people may have it on the left side, others may have it on
both sides with the left side taking up the majority of the cases. Today we will discuss prostatitis
and varicocele according to my experiences and research. Do not underestimate these two
illnesses by any means.

I contracted prostatitis very early on, within a year of when I started to masturbate. The
symptoms of frequent and urgent urination appeared, at most I would go to the toilet over 10
times during the span of a night. During the day I would need to pee shortly after drinking water,
holding it back was impossible. Later on, I learned that the inability to hold back urine is very
common among elderly people, this is because elderly people have greatly weakened kidney qi
and hence they have lost the ability to withhold urine. Children, by contrast, have an abundance
of kidney qi, enabling them to withhold peeing even on a full bladder for over an hour. Therefore,
frequent urination is the sign that your kidney qi is on the decline and that PMO needs to cease,
this is your body sending you warnings. If you do not heed the warning and continue what you
were doing, this will result in the more serious form of prostatitis. The problem does not stop at
prostatitis, the whole body might experience symptoms. Many diseases arise from weakened
kidneys, prostatitis is only one the earliest appearing symptoms.

Normally, when we encounter the symptom of frequent urination, we should know that it is
caused by PMO. This is because before we engaged in PMO the symptoms were absent.
During this time most people would rein in the horse at the edge of the precipice so to speak
and start to curb masturbation on their own initiative. After a couple weeks, kidney qi have
started to recover, masturbation resumes and

frequent urination again makes its presence known. Usually, we would be given two forms of
medicine at the hospital, one specifically treats prostatitis and the other treats inflammation. The
more ethical doctors will advise you to stop masturbation and long sittings. The actual situation
is that many doctors have not realized the danger of masturbation, many doctors subscribe by
the harmlessness theory of masturbation, this is very sad indeed.

Now that I have completely cut out PMO, frequent urination have not resurfaced anymore. After
studying TCM I came to realize that abundant kidney qi wards off many forms of unhealthy
influences, weak kidney qi will invite onto itself any possible illness. Many brothers have spent
tens of thousands on medical expenses in order to treat prostatitis but the illness remains and is
not cured over an extended period of time. Often, prostatitis would temporarily heal only to
reappear again after masturbation is resumed, the relapse rate is very high. Actually the root
reason for the relapses is due to misconceptions in understanding. Many brothers treat

Page | 28
prostatitis as a cold, they think that by eating a few pills the problem would resolve itself and to
never appear again, this is a grave misunderstanding. The outbreak of prostatitis is precisely
due to that kidney qi have been weakened as a result of masturbation, the purpose of taking
medicine is to recover kidney qi. If you continue to masturbate once kidney qi has recovered
you will injure it again and prostatitis will relapse. If you still have not recognized the seriousness
of kidney qi and treat prostatitis as the common flu, then you will never treat the illness from its
roots in your lifetime, after the age of 40 the illness may proliferate or develop into more serious
forms. Therefore, there is only one way to completely cure prostatitis, and that is to completely
quit PMO and also sexual fantasizing, exercise proactively, not staying up late during the nights
and not sitting in long periods at a time. Cultivate favorable lifestyle and dietary habits. For those
married brothers, if your prostatitis is serious, I would advise you to exercise self-restraint for a
while until you have accumulated abundant kidney qi. Once kidney qi is plentiful, use it sparingly
which means to practice moderation in the sex life. In this way, relapses in prostatitis can be
avoided. [Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor]: illness is due to overuse! Therefore, the practice
of moderation is a learning in itself, to overdo is the same as to underdo.

Many people ask the question of whether asceticism is harmful. Rookies especially would ask
this question. My answer is the asceticism is harmless, if it is harmful then wouldn’t that mean
all monks are unhealthy? The reality is that many monks live up to 100 years and beyond.
Master Hsu Yun lived 120 years, Master Benhuan reached the age of 106 years, in the Buddhist
school, there are many cases of longevity. Therefore, the notion that asceticism is harmful to the
body is sheer nonsense. There is only one scenario that would make asceticism harmful, and
that is when the cultivation of heart/mind is inadequate and sexual fantasizing occurs daily with
the urge to masturbate but one does not dare to act upon it, the continuous restrainment in this
manner would possibly give rise to problems. If the cultivation is adequate then self-restraint is
harmless.

I would like to add a point and that is the harmfulness of sexual fantasizing. Many rookies would
ask: if fantasizing without masturbation count as breaking the reboot and whether or not it’s
harmful? Actually, sexual fantasizing seriously depletes the body, even more serious than
masturbation itself. This is clearly treated in TCM. Many brothers discover that their
spirit/manner is depressed after looking themselves in the mirror following sexual fantasies. In
TCM this is called: essence leaves when the mind wanders. As long as we engage in sexual
fantasization, essence will automatically leave us. Masturbation is the visible form of depletion
while sexual fantasization is the invisible form, the invisible being the more serious form.
Hopefully all brothers would deeply recognize what has been said and increase their rebooting
studies, intensify the heart/mind cultivation and cut out all sexual fantasies; cut out the thought
once it has arisen, an arisen thought should not be followed, the mind being immediately aware
of new thoughts and the ceasing of the thought once the mind is aware of it.

Below we will be entering the core material:

Prostatitis will lead to infertility. Every person with prostatitis will of course not become infertile,
specifically, it will depend on the seriousness of your condition. Prostatitis will also result in the
decline of sperm quality, if the quality is poor the offspring will not live up to an excellent
standard. It’s possible that your future child will suffer from health problems the moment it is
born, with inadequate prenatal conditions. Many brothers are skeptical to the notion of karma
because you have indulged yourself in ignorance during your youthful years, it is very possible
that fertility will be lost in the future, this, in reality, is karma. During this day and age of
indulgence, infertility is ever more common and troubles many people. In this stage you are

Page | 29
possibly troubled by the symptoms caused by masturbation, once you are married, the worry
will be on the inadequate sperm quality which is unable to cause pregnancy. Moreover,
according to
TCM: kidneys are connected to the brain in the above! Masturbation hurts the kidney and brain
power, a decrease in the brain power will adversely affect studies and career to a large degree.
Therefore, it would be wise to put a stop to pre-marital sex and take good care in building up the
kidney qi so that in the future, one might give birth to a healthy child. Every day I answer
questions in the forums, up until now I estimate to have answered a thousand questions. Among
those that have engaged in premarital sex and let loose their indulgence, many brothers have
lost their sexual function. The emergence of pre-ejaculation and impotence among brothers is
incredibly many. Suppose that your body is not working properly when you are single, after
marriage how do you suppose to keep a healthy sex life? If your wife is not understanding then
it divorce is a big possibility. To discard the health before marriage, how does one cope with the
future? This is a very serious and realistic question, therefore, the recommendation to
abolishing pre-marital sex is very very important, not only does it affect the quality of your
married life but also the future generation.

Let’s return to the topic of varicocele, this is also one of the main culprits behind infertility.
Varicocele greatly affects the quality of the sperm. The basic reason for developing this illness is
due to long-term masturbating and long-term sitting, this is also karma.

Many brothers are unaware that they have caught varicocele which is why it’s easily neglected. I
have had it for over a decade without being aware of it, this is because my illness was not
serious and the feelings of discomfort were absent. I discovered that I had varicocele when I
went to the hospital for a checkup, during the time I was suffering from prostatitis and varicocele
simultaneously, one could imagine the low sperm quality at the time which was not up to the
standard of causing pregnancy. Now that I have cut out masturbation for good and accumulated
plenty of kidney qi, sperm quality has returned to normal. Although my case of varicocele was
mild, the doctor still advised me to undergo an operation, he said something that was very
discouraging; even if I had an operation it would not guarantee that I would regain my fertility,
luck is also involved! Afterwards, from studying TCM I came to understood that an operation
would only help to resolve ligation and not the recovery of kidney qi. If your kidney qi is
weakened, even an operation would not help. Therefore, take care in accumulating kidney qi is
the key to recovery, or else you might undergo an operation and recover temporarily, only to
masturbate again and deplete the kidney qi, varicocele relapses and all the crying in the world
would be of no use.

Lastly, let’s talk about the tendency of premature ejaculation and impotence and their recovery.
Actually, I have already discussed this in detail in my previous Season 1; the tendency of
premature ejaculation and impotence are manifestations of the body’s own protection
mechanism. The concept is similar to the closing of skin pores when exposed to cold air.
Premature ejaculation and impotence occur when the body is self-preserving, many brothers
are unaware of this fact, they instead go on to look for filthy material and overdraft their kidney
qi. In this way, the tendency of premature ejaculation and impotence becomes more severe.
When many brothers encounter premature ejaculation and impotence tendencies for the first
time, their initial reaction is not to quit masturbation but to supplement the body via diet, or to
visit the doctor and in hopes to recover. Dietary supplements do indeed help in the recovery of
kidney qi, but once kidney qi is recovered and you continue to masturbate and deplete it, the
aforementioned tendencies will return. By taking the same supplements again the effects will
not be very apparent because the effect of medicines tends to diminish over time. Therefore,

Page | 30
dietary supplements are incapable of solving the root issue, one must cut out PMO, exercise
proactively, have the correct lifestyle habits to assist the accumulation of kidney qi. Once the
kidney qi is abundant, do not engage in testing (Translator’s note: we have talked about this in
Season 2, masturbate in order to find out if one has recovered is called testing), by testing, we
again fall into the trap of PMO and into the vicious circle. Furthermore, the recovery of
premature ejaculation and impotence is very slow, 3 months in the fast cases and over a year or
more for slower cases. Therefore, make preparations for a long and drawn out battle, slowly
accumulate kidney qi little by little and do not resort to doing anything that will injure kidney qi.
Many people only knows sex to be the sole cause to deplete kidney qi, in reality there are many
ways of depletion: indulgences, staying up during the night, anger, long sittings, cold beverages,
overly fatigue, over-strenuous exertion, exposure to AC, all of the mentioned will have a wear on
the kidney qi. When your kidney qi is plentiful we will not feel much discomfort like just we won’t
feel poor if we spend a little money out of a bulging wallet, but when your kidney is not plentiful
this will be like adding frost on top of the snow. TCM treats kidney qi like currency for the health,
during normal times we need to save it and not blindly waste it, we need to understand how to
cultivate the health and kidney qi and to nurture it. This way, we will be able to keep a healthy
spirit.

After having answered so many questions, I feel that many brothers are not only affected by
physical symptoms, more importantly, there is a problem in the understanding. When
misconceptions exist in the
understanding, it is very difficult to cut out PMO, as long as the misconceptions are present one
can forget about recovering from prostatitis, premature ejaculation, and impotence. Therefore,
we must all study rebooting knowledge, including health maintenance knowledge from TCM, in
order to correct the misconceptions in our thoughts. When the correct understanding and
thoughts have been formed in your brain, you will know what to do instead of putting all hope on
medicine and on doctors, that would be equivalent to seeking fish on a tree. Diseases that arise
from kidney qi deficiency cannot be cured by medicine or doctors alone, it is a process of 30%
treatment and 70% maintenance. Importance is placed on maintenance, once we’ve learned
how to cultivate kidney qi and it becomes plentiful, the evil of all shapes and forms is warded off.
Whatever you do, do not treat kidney qi deficiency as mere flu and hope to resolve it with
medicine, kidney deficiency requires maintenance and not on medication.

Conclusion: Nowadays the younger generation is walking the same winding path of falseness
that I have once trodden, this is because Chinese education is lacking in this area. This
knowledge cannot be learned in schools, therefore there is much misunderstanding in the
thoughts among brothers. Misconceptions in the understanding will cause one to sink ever
deeper into the trap of PMO unable to extricate ourselves from. Many people once addicted
resembles walking zombies, the power of the pink opium is not to be underestimated. Plenty of
brothers that I have conversed with wanted to take their lives. Because masturbation in
combination with staying up during the night has brought upon them even more serious forms of
mental and anxiety disorder; autonomic disorders, OCD, depression. These disorders are
unimaginable among those that suffer from frequent urination. I now write this article in hopes
that the younger generation does not have to repeat my mistakes. I hope that this article has
brought everybody beneficial inspiration. Comrades in the trenches of rebooting, keep on
fighting!

Season 7 [Soaring Eagle experience: 3 stages in rebooting and deep
analysis regarding staying up during the night and long sittings]

Before we head over to the main texts let’s revisit the issue of nocturnal emissions once again. I
have written an article about this in Season 3 where I had recommended a movement from the
Eight Brocade qigong, many brothers have tried this exercise and I have received two types of
feedback: The first type is from people who had not experienced noticeable benefit and the
other type is from people who have benefited greatly from the said exercise. Many people have
broken their records in the number of days without nocturnal emissions, some have gone on for
20 days without any emissions while others have only had one emission in well over a month,
which is a vast improvement compared to their previous 3 times per month.

Why have some people not noticed much of a difference after practicing the Eight Brocade
movement? Actually, the reason lies with the individual, many people have not found the feeling
while doing this movement, they sloppily get it over with and after having performed 200 of them
without finding the strong stretching sensation and then they head to the bed, how can the
benefit be guaranteed in this case? One must find the correct sensation by finding the stretching
feeling and intensify the feeling of stretching, elongating and straightening. One must carry this
strong sensation to bed and in doing so there will be results. Moreover, there are many other
causes that may bring about nocturnal emission: sexual fantasizing during the day, fatigue
during the day, alcohol consumption, too much meat consumption, sleeping facing down,
sleeping nude, sun drying blankets, too thick blankets, meditation prior to bed, too tight
underwear, one must try to avoid all these factors.

Reducing the number of nocturnal emissions to a minimum is very beneficial for the recovery of
the body. Otherwise, it doesn’t matter how much supplements you take because they will all
leak away during those frequent episodes of nocturnal emissions. Therefore, the question of
how to reduce the number of emissions is something that all brothers must face and consider.
The movement I have recommended for the Eight Brocade exercise if done correctly is very
effective for securing the essence gate, the key is to find the correct sensation. I cannot
guarantee that you would not experience nocturnal emissions by doing the said exercise. I can
guarantee, however, given that you have found the correct sensation and have avoided the
aforementioned contributing factors towards nocturnal emissions, that one is able to bring down
the number of emissions to 1 per month or 12 times/year. By bringing down the number of
emissions to these figures it will greatly benefit the recovery of the body.

When one first start to perform this movement, there will be soreness in the muscles, in
physiology, this is called “delayed muscle soreness”. Normally the soreness will automatically
vanish after 1-3 weeks if we then repeat the same movement there will be no more soreness.
This process requires time, as long as one is persistent the soreness will

disappear by itself, so do not worry if the soreness appears. In addition, those people who have
practiced ligament exercises and are able to touch the ground with their palms, one can try to
increase the intensity; for example by raising the tip of the foot, touching one foot with both
hands or by doing the exercise while standing on a small bench. Take care to not perform the
movement too quickly or else one will be prone to feel dizzy, try to find your own pace and
rhythm and combine it with the right sensation, this will form the correct exercise.

Page | 32
The above kidney strengthening exercise is the distillation of my own experiences and
experiments. I am able to, therefore, share my most direct experience with everybody and hope
that everyone will have ample opportunities to try it out. Persist in doing this movement and in
time one will find the sensation. For some talented people, they will find the sensation very
quickly, for others it will take longer until they find the feeling.

Below we will enter the main topic of Season 7

I have talked about the 3 stages of rebooting in Season 4, these are:

Beginner’s stage: blind way and the brute force way of rebooting, no studies.

Intermediate stage: studies rebooting, one begins to understand the importance of learning
about rebooting.

Advanced stage: understands, studies combined with realization, the possibility of successful
reboot becomes a reality.

Everybody can compare their own progress with the above stages, many brothers have been
rebooting for many years but still remain in the beginner’s stage. When they break their reboot
the blame is placed on the lack of willpower, in fact, by relying on willpower in the brute force
manner will surely result in failure. To be successful one must study rebooting knowledge and
read articles about rebooting in order to raise one’s awareness and the level of determination.
With determination we are able to defeat the temptations of the mind, without it we will lack the
resistance and surrender ourselves to it. Rebooting and failing for numerous years is likened to
you going to school if you do not study you will forever remain in grade 1. But you if you study
constantly you will be able to progress into middle school, high school and onto college.
Rebooting works, in the same way, one must constantly study in order to
raise the determination, when your determination is like a little tree sapling, heavy winds are
able to topple it. But when your determination is sturdy as a mountain, not even typhoons or
hurricanes will be able to shift you, not even a nuclear blast will move you. Do not blame,
therefore, on external circumstances when we break our reboot although it is true that the
temptation in this indulgence grounded society is very great. However, if your determination is
strong enough, no amount of temptation will be able to sway you; seeing is as not seeing,
thoughts fail to enter our intention. In order to raise the level of determination we must study
vast amounts of rebooting articles and knowledge, the more we read and study the more we will
understand. These studies are the kind that we must carry out everyday and not one of those
articles about the harmfulness of masturbation where you read through once and then stop
studying. One must study rebooting articles every day, if you have religious beliefs then all the
better because having a belief will greatly aid your rebooting efforts, people with religious beliefs
have an easier time to successfully reboot.

Once you have realized the importance of studying rebooting knowledge, then you will search
for rebooting articles on your own initiative. The more effort in studying the higher the level of
our determination until we reach a stage of natural understanding, once there, our level of
awareness vastly increases and the record of rebooting days will greatly increase. Naturally, the
speed of progress will depend on the perception of the reader, readers with keen perceptions
will be able to skip grades while others will have to remain in grades. Some people are able to
reboot for over 200 days and still fail, this is owing to slack in studying or being weary of
studying, as soon as we relax our vigilance the temptations will seize the opportunity to enter

our mind, if your understanding hasn't reached a masterly level, it is very easy to slip and before
we know it we have relapsed. Actually, we don’t need to look for new articles once we have
reached a certain stage in our studies and have come to an adequate level of understanding. In
this case, it will be enough to find a few articles that we are fond of and re-read them daily, thus
learning by repetition similar to the morning and evening sessions in Buddhism.

After having answered a thousand questions I deeply feel that the majority of the brothers are
still in the beginner’s stage. This especially applies to newcomers, without studying it is hard to
avoid failure. This is the reason to why I have recommended to study more rebooting knowledge
and read reboot articles in my answers. Understanding can only be obtained through learning.
There was a time when I didn’t study
and my rebooting record was 28 days, I believe that many brothers are able to beat me.
However, once when I gained the understanding, my determination greatly increases and
success was to be had. Right now I’m still in the stage of studying and gaining more
understanding with newly founded insights every day. I have come to complete understanding,
once you are there you will be able to cut out PMO forever. In my current stage, there is no
more sexual fantasization, because fantasizing is an invisible way of expensing kidney qi. When
you have understood this from studying TCM, I believe that many brothers will fantasize as little
as possible. Through the continuous studies and the accumulation of knowledge, the reboot will
become more professional and wider in scope, we will no longer stay on the level of blind and
brute force reboot.

Let’s now discuss the body recovery following rebooting, this chapter mainly deals with the
harmfulness of staying up late and long sitting.

Many brothers comment that they have experienced little improvement or a very slow speed of
recovery during their reboot. There are several factors to this; frequent nocturnal emissions,
unhealthy lifestyle and also the lack of habit to exercise.

According to my research, those who frequently exercise while rebooting recover faster and
better compared to those who don’t exercise. This is what is mentioned in TCM: movement
raises the Yang energy, strong Yang energy contributes to longevity. Of course, I’m talking
about moderate exercise and not over-exercising, over-exercising is just as bad as under-
exercising.

Although lots of brothers are undergoing rebooting, they are still staying up late at nights and
sitting for long stretches of time. Either they are lacking a deep understanding towards these
two issues, or they do it out of habit. The power of habit is very strong and is difficult to correct
immediately, however difficult, we must still change the habit with the courage that a warrior
possesses. We must correct it or the negative consequences will not be light.

The notion of staying up during the night, many brothers thinks that this means to stay up during
the entire night. Actually, when I refer to staying up during the night I mean sleeping later than
23:00. If you go to bed past 23:00 then the body will have a hard time recovering, this is
because what is mentioned in TCM: 23:00 is the time when Yang energy begins to rise, during
this time one must be asleep for the body to recovery better, if
past this time the body will have a harder time to recover. We can compare this to the analogy
of missing the last bus at night, we can only resort to waiting for the bus on the following day.
According to TCM, if we staying up during one night, a long period of time is required for us to
recover from it. The latent harm in staying up a single night might require 100 days for the body

Page | 34
to fully recover. Many brothers don’t understand this medical knowledge and treat staying up as
regular snacks. Oftentimes it is the combination of staying up, long sitting and masturbation that
quickly wrecks the health and they may see the onset of neurasthenia and psychological
problems. This is a vicious circle and the necessary karma that the mentioned bad habits will
surely result in. While on reboot one must also cut out staying up during the night since it is very
damaging to our essences, we must be aware of this medical knowledge. If your understanding
is not deep enough then you will continue to stay up during the nights. Do not under any
circumstance underestimate the effect of this habit, it’s like the frog in the boiling pot where
slowly and surely we are making our bodies useless. Optimally, one should go to bed at around
21:30. Many brothers have difficulty in doing this, what I want to say is to avoid staying up
during the night at all cost, or else the damage will be on you. Of the brothers that I have
conversed with, those that do not staying up during the night recover faster than those that do.

Let’s talk about long sitting. This is maybe the first time that many brothers have heard about
the harmful theory in long sitting. In reality, the long sitting is very harmful to the body and may
cause lumbar spondylosis and cervical spondylosis. Sitting for long periods at a time hurts the
kidney as well as the spleen, it injures the transportation function of the spleen and affects the
digestion, the bladder meridian is also being compressed, the damage is substantial. One will
also have an easier time to catch prostatitis and varicocele. Furthermore, the Yang energy is
found in movement while the Ying energy is in stillness, long sitting belongs to the Ying. The
place that we as living people inhabit is called the Yang room. Long sitting causes the Ying
energy to proliferate in the body. It is mentioned in the classic TCM texts that long sitting
discounts longevity, as the Ying energy grows this will ultimately lead to the belonging of Ying
which means moving towards the Ying room, to death. Therefore, we need to get moving. Every
40 minutes of sitting should be accompanied by 10 minutes of exercising. Don’t sit down for
hours at a time, this is very harmful. The harm from long sitting and staying up during the night
are the kind of harm that slowly accumulates over time, we might not feel it at once but once the
time is ripe the negative karma will take on an apparent form. Therefore, everyone must gain
the proper understanding with regards to the aforementioned issues, or else it is very hurtful
towards our recovery, remember this at all cost!

Concluding words: the recovery status for those that love to exercise, do not stay up during the
night nor sit for long periods at a time is quite optimistic. Merely rebooting is not enough, one
must also adopt a healthy lifestyle. I hope to have brought about positive inspiration through this
article, keep on fighting everyone!

Season 8 [Soaring Eagle experience: the issue of height growth,
going bald, acne and reactions to rebooting]

In this season we will talk about the four topics of height growth, baldness, acne, and reactions
to rebooting. The first three questions are regarded with interest among brothers while the last
question is a common one among brothers who have been rebooting for some time. Let us
discuss them in detail below:

Many brothers would ask if masturbation would affect one’s growth in height. My answer is:
masturbation indeed affects height, it will affect the development of the bones. TCM: kidneys
govern the bone. Those that are born after the 90s would inquire on the issue of height, this is
because these group of people is still growing. Those are born in the 80s would inquire less
about this question due to that their bodies have basically already matured. Many people would
wonder about the question: since everyone masturbates, why is it that some people still grow to
become tall. Actually, this is an easy question to answers because of the number of factors that
affects growth, masturbation being among one of them. Although many people masturbate
frequently, they have managed to avoid the other factors that would negatively affect their
growth, for these people the effect of masturbation on growth is not very obvious. Let’s take
myself as an example, both my parents are not tall, my mother and dad being 160 cm and 170
cm tall respectively, but my height is 186cm despite that I frequently masturbated during puberty.
Although my genetic conditions were not favorable, I did well in other areas so I was still able to
reach a height of 186 cm. Though I managed to grow to 186cm, I can clearly feel that my bone
density is not up to par and having a bit of osteoporosis, I would easily spring my ankle or break
my bones during exercise. After studying TCM I came to understand, insufficient kidney qi will
lead to osteoporosis, once injured, full recovery is not easily made. According to my
understanding, after a period of careful cultivation, although not apparent on the outside, many
people would measure themselves to weigh heavier on the scale, where does this extra weight
come from? It actually comes from bone density, previously the bones were porous but through
cultivation bone density increases and so weight increases, on the outside, there are no visible
changes.

I have summarized the following factors that would affect the growth of height:

1. Genetics
2. Exercise
3. Staying up and long sitting
4. Nutrition
5. Sleep quality
6. Digestion function
7. Masturbation
8. Psychological reasons

The factors that influence height growth would typically be found in the above eight factors. A lot
of articles only mentions 5 factors, some places genetics as the main driver while others put the
emphasis on genetics at 30%. I lean more towards the 30% argument because I’m a living
example of it. Although I have masturbated frequently during puberty, I did well in other areas. I
scored low on the 1st and 7th factor, in other words on genetics and masturbation, but I did well
in the other 6 areas. During puberty, I often played basketball outside and under the sun, more
exposure to sunshine does help with growth because sunshine helps with the synthesis of

Page | 36
vitamin D which favors the accumulation and settlement of calcium within the bones, this allows
the bones to grow quickly and the body to rapidly gain in length. Frequent exercise is very
beneficial for the development of bones which helps the bones to grow. I have never stayed up
nor sat for long periods of time, I loved to move around and seldom sat for hours at a time.
Normally I would sleep at 9 pm with a high quality of sleep, my digestion function was strong
which enabled me to eat and sleep well. Many people are able to eat but their digestion cannot
keep up, the nutrients would not be absorbed, this is why the digestion function is very important.
In addition, psychological health is also very important. TCM states: seven emotional states
causes illness, emotions will cause sickness and
disorder of internal secretions, this will also affect height growth. For those of you that are born
in the 90s and want to grow taller, it’s advised to put efforts into the aforementioned 8 factors.
Naturally one should cut out masturbation as this will further benefit height growth, by cutting out
masturbation bone density will be high.

Below we will discuss the issue of going bald

Brothers with a PMO history of over 10 years tend to run into the problem of going bald, those
that were born in the 80s have a higher chance of running into this issue. Many factors lead to
hair loss, the common reason is due to kidney deficiency induced by masturbation. Going bald
causes much anxiety among people because hair is important to one’s physical appearance.
The impression that baldness gives out is that of premature aging and the lack of spirit. Many
brothers would lose 100 strands of hair or more each day. Looking at the hair in the comb and in
the basin gives one the feeling of panic, the panic towards going bald is disconcerting and leads
one to become abnormally sensitive towards hair loss, the loss of a strand of hair would cause
nervousness for a hours. Living in a state of constant worry and panic causes additional hair
loss. According to TCM: fear hurts the kidneys, the splendor of the hair lies in the kidneys.
Therefore it is easy to fall into the vicious circle, one looks everywhere for an antidote. But no
matter what the medicine is, the effect will not be satisfactory, thus the psychological pressure
becomes greater and one cares a great deal about the opinions of other people. One may also
be afraid to look into the mirror for fear of seeing diminished hair count, even the thought of
suicide would crop up. The issue of going bald places a person in a predicament that the person
is incapable of escaping from. Many people would channel this frustration into acts of
masturbation which would cause even more hair loss. In the end, one may end up with a
“Mediterranean” style bald spot.

The hairline of many brothers have already begun to recede upwards, some people would begin
to go bald from the crown of the head which is what happened to me. Some days I would lose
several hundred strands of hair, after having combed my hair I would see all those hair on my
shoulders, that is too scary! This went on for several months and the scalp at the crown of head
started to become more visible. Fortunately at the time, I already recognized the true face of the
harmlessness theories in masturbation, moreover, I had gained a relatively deep understanding
about TCM. Consequently, I rebooted with haste, exercised regularly, slept early and slowly
accumulated the kidney qi. Roughly half a year later I would lose around 5 strands of hair daily.
If I comb my hair nowadays I would not see any hairs on the comb and very few hairs on the
pillow.

I wouldn’t dare to masturbate anymore because I have realized the bitterness of its harm. Many
brothers are still in the ignorance stage, ignorant people are not fearful, they have not fully
comprehended the evil fruit brought forth by masturbation. Some brothers are even still

Page | 37
mesmerized by the harmlessness theories, after losing hair they still don’t know the real reason
and continues to masturbate, channeling the psychological pressure into the act of masturbation.
In doing so one sinks ever deeper into the trap of the vicious circle which makes hair loss even
more difficult to recover from. Because there are blind spots and misconceptions in the
understanding, no matter what medicine we take we will not be able to solve the problem from
its root. If kidney qi is not cultivated into abundance then the issue of losing hair will not find a
solution. This is analogous with a pot of plant when the leaves have withered we think there’s a
problem with the leaves and we thus remove them, but after a while, all leaves would wither
away and the plant dies. An expert would spot the problem right away and would dig out the soil
and apply for medicine onto the roots which enable the plant to live on. The hair follows the
same principle, we must recognize the reason from its roots and not become mesmerized by
outer appearances, relying on some overpromoted products in hopes to treat hair loss is not a
realistic approach. Even if you have hair transplanted, as long as the kidney qi is not abundant
the hair would still fall out unless you repeatedly undergo the same procedure which would be
far too expensive for the average person.

The following factors lead to hair loss:

1. Genetics (parents)
2. Too high androgen production (male baldness)
3. Staying up and long sitting (hurts the essences and kidneys)
4. Overindulgence (kidney deficiency induced hair loss)
5. Dietary habits (too much salt in the diet will induce hair loss)
6. Psychological reasons (pressure-induced hair loss)
7. Illness (many illnesses cause hair loss)
8. Hygienic reasons (dandruff blocks off the hair pores)
9. Seasonal hair loss (hair loss is more common during the summer season)
10. Nutritious reasons (severe malnutrition induced hair loss)
11. Physicochemical hair loss (hair loss under stimulant conditions)

Let’s talk about acne.

Many people think that acne would naturally vanish after puberty, actually, this view is incorrect.
I have seen many 30 and 40-year-olds still with acne on their
faces, in these cases we are no longer dealing with acne but a disorder in the internal
secretions. Normal acne would heal very quickly given the conditions of being well rested and a
light diet. However, the stubborn cases of acne brought upon by masturbation are difficult to
heal from. This acne is very stubborn, the only hope of recovery is through cutting out
masturbation, proactive exercise and through the accumulation of kidney qi. Otherwise, the
disorder in the five internal organs may last indefinitely and accompany us throughout life, the
result being a destroyed appearance, degraded spirit, feelings of self-inferiority, a face full of
acne like an abomination, truly appalling. The contrast in skin texture compared to pre-puberty
times is night and day. When one masturbates, the face becomes oily, in the hospital, they say
it is acne seborrheic dermatitis and prescribes medicine which gives mixed results. As long as
we continue to masturbate, medicine will have limited effect and only works in the short run,
unable to solve the problem from its root. The majority of brothers have become uglier, this is
the result of damaged kidney qi induced by masturbation, lost kidney qi makes it more likely for
the functions of the five internal organs to become disorderly. When the five internal organs are
thrown off balance this is reflected in the face because the face is a reflection of the organs, we
feel dispirited and decadent which only aggravates our chances of getting acne.

Page | 38
In short, in order to completely cure the stubborn kind of acne, one must cut out masturbation
and cultivate a good habit in working, resting, eating and active exercising, only through these
means is there the hope of restoring healthy skin. Otherwise, all discussions are pointless.

Additionally, although some people may not have stubborn acne, their complexion resembles
that of a ghost, without sunshine and completely dull. There may even be a hollowness look to
their faces as if a layer of skin wrapped around a skeleton, their complexion lacks any form of
liveliness and vitality and reminds one of premature aging. An overindulgent young person
resembles neither man nor ghost, like that of a deflated ball. Such a person is like an opium
addict from the old society that is addicted to smoking and sex, how can such a body be good?
Therefore, to cut out the addiction is the best way going forward, fail to cut it out will only harm
the person himself. Some people may have a strong body and so the karmic consequences
may appear late. But as long as one indulgence in debauchery, sooner or later the results will
show, nobody can escape from it. By not maintaining the body, issues will easily arise. The
human body is like a machine that requires maintenance, without maintenance it will depreciate
rapidly, like a new bike that manages to retain 90% of its value one year after purchase if
properly maintained, if maintenance is neglected there will only be 50% value remaining if not
already useless. This is the importance of maintenance awareness, by neglecting maintenance
there will not be longevity.
Lastly, let’s talk about the reactions towards rebooting.

I have studied many forms of addictions, which includes drinking, smoking, drugs, internet, sex,
shopping and etc. In every case of addiction, there will be withdrawal symptoms when we try to
quit. The symptoms may vary in severity from person to person. Masturbation induced sexual
addiction will also have its withdrawal symptoms. The majority of brothers will encounter
symptoms when they are undergoing a reboot. However, during the period when they
masturbate there will be no such symptoms present. From the messages that I have received,
the majority of the symptoms are found in issues with the urinary system, with prostatitis being
the main culprit, this is followed by sleeping difficulties, irritated mood and so on.

The reactions from cutting out an addiction can be understood in the TCM point of view, which
is similar to when the body is shedding itself from a disease. Much traditional Chinese medicine
once ingested, will lead to the reaction of shedding illnesses. When the reactions are severe this
is, in fact, a good sign, battle between good and evil is taking place. As long as we continue to
take the medicine, vital energy will win the upper hand and the illness will slowly heal. Many
people do not understand these reactions, when the reactions are severe they think that they
have taken the wrong medicine and stops taking it, this is, in fact, delaying the healing process.
The ancients said: for the sake of the younger generation one has to understand medicine
because if you understand it you are in a better position to cooperate with the physician.

The mechanism to withdrawal symptoms according to Western medicine: due to long time
masturbation, a sudden stop brings about an adaptive rebounding reaction. For instance, when
alcohol addiction is cut the following symptoms may appear excitement, insomnia or even
epilepsy syndromes. Smokers quitting cold turkey may also experience restlessness, insomnia,
increase in appetite, coughing up black/greyish phlegm, increase in blood pressure and
arrhythmia reactions. Lots of pain will result from the mentioned reactions but the frequency of
the symptoms will slowly decrease following the recovery of the constitution. Normally, after
cutting out masturbation, withdrawal symptoms will appear within a month, for some, it might

Page | 39
only take several days. When symptoms appear do not be frightened, by actively exercising and
maintaining a healthy lifestyle, the symptoms will automatically disappear.

Season 9 [Soaring Eagle experience: the issue of tinnitus, rebooting
mentality, the importance of searching for study materials]

Tinnitus is a common problem among brothers. Naturally, there are many factors that may
cause tinnitus. But normally, the kind of tinnitus that many brothers encounter arises out of
kidney deficiency, due to overindulgence in debauchery, poor lifestyle habits, frequent staying
up late, long sittings, all of the mentioned factors make it easier for the appearance of tinnitus.

TCM: kidneys enlightens the ears. When kidneys are weak, tinnitus will come knocking on the
door. Many brothers are deeply troubled by tinnitus, their condition would not heal in the long
term and so they put their hopes in medicines. As everyone knows by now, cutting out the
addiction of masturbation is the basic prerequisite, how can you expect to get better if you
continue to masturbate and engage in sexual fantasies? I was once a victim of tinnitus, of
course, I was relatively ignorant at the time. Afterwards, as I learned to cultivate my health and
having actively exercised for half a year, my kidney qi became abundant and my tinnitus
vanished without needing to take any medicines! The best supplement is to not leak. In addition,
nocturnal emissions do count as leakages and it will have adverse impacts on the body. If your
kidney qi is in the abundance, an occasional emission will not be felt, however, if your kidney qi
has sustained damage, further leakages will make things worse. Among the question that I have
answered, numerous brothers are troubled by the issue of nocturnal emissions, their bodies get
worse by the day through frequent emissions. TCM touches on the point: long-term emissions
injures the eight extra meridians. (Translator’s note: a detailed explanation of the eight extra
meridians is beyond the scope of this article, for those that are interested may consult Google
using the terminology) Therefore, to recover from tinnitus, one should reduce the number of
nocturnal emissions. I hope that everyone continues to perform the Eight Brocade kidney
strengthening exercise from chapter 3, many brothers have reported excellent benefits from the
exercise and have managed to greatly reduce the number of emissions. Of course, the
precondition is that one has found the correct feeling when doing the exercise, as well as putting
a stop to other factors that contribute towards nocturnal emissions.

The sound that one typically hears from kidney deficiency induced tinnitus sounds like the
cicadas, a whistling or a hissing sound. The sound that I heard is the cicadas as if I had one
living in my ears. The sound was sharp, drawn out and it was very irritating, sometimes it would
make it difficult for me to sleep. I had this trouble since high school but it was not serious at the
time, it becomes more serious after I started to stay up during the nights and sat for long periods
at a time. Normally, when kidney deficiency induced tinnitus first makes its appearance it is
accompanied by other symptoms. The 6 most commonly occurring symptoms can be found
below:

Brainpower aspect: decreased memory, lack of focus, lack of energy, low efficiency in working.

Emotional aspect: poor emotions that are hard to control, dizziness, easily angered, irritability,
anxiety, depression and so on.

Willpower aspect: lack of self-confidence, lack of passion in work, lack of passion in life, lack of
goal and direction.

Page | 41
Sexual function aspect: lack of sexual appetite, impotence or softness, nocturnal emissions,
semen leakage, premature ejaculation, decreased sperm count and less lively sperm activity,
infertility.

Urinary function aspect: frequent urination, delay in urination, frequent urination in combination
with greater volume, white dripping, prostatitis, varicocele.

Other aspects: premature aging, forgetfulness, insomnia, poor appetite, bone and joint pains,
waist and knee soreness, easily fatigued, fatigue, a decrease in eyesight. hair loss, premature
greying, loosening of teeth.

Masturbation causes the weakening of the kidneys, when kidneys weaken many physical and
psychological symptoms will appear. This is because masturbation destroys the body and the
mind, tinnitus is but one of the symptoms of weakened kidneys. To completely heal tinnitus one
must completely quit masturbation and sexual fantasization, actively exercise, regularize eating
and resting habits and accumulate kidney qi. Abundant kidney qi wards off evil in all shapes and
forms. Otherwise, all the medicine in the world is of no use, one might be fed up with taking all
the medicine without curing tinnitus. Many brothers report that after 2-3 month of rebooting there
is still no visible improvements in their health. What I want to say is that cutting out masturbation
alone is not enough, one must learn to cultivate the health, actively exercise, only in this way will
there be a quick recovery in the kidney qi. Furthermore, many brothers have sustained heavy
injuries to their essences, subsequently, the recovery will be gradual. My feeling is that the pace
of recovery is like the speed of hair growth, it is very slow indeed. But if you do not cut your hair
for half a year you will notice your hair has become very long, 2-3 months is relatively short in
comparison. Therefore, to recover from kidney deficiency one must make the mental
preparation to engage in long-term battle and persist each and every day. In addition, effort
must also be placed in reducing the frequency of nocturnal emissions, because night emissions
are very unfavorable to the recovery process.

Let’s talk about the regulation of the rebooting mentality.

Because of masturbation many brothers have developed psychological problems such as a


pessimistic view towards life and to give up on themselves, both are common occurrences.
Once I had also experienced these mental disturbances; the loss of hope, lack of motivation,
lack of self-confidence, feeling inferior and even self-mutilation.

To encounter the aforementioned issues is very normal because masturbation destroys the
body and the mind. When the body runs into issues, the mind will also face problems. If the
body runs into issues, we regulate the body, if the mind encounters problems we also need to
learn to make timely adjustments.

Everybody should know that in this world there is always two side of ourselves, one side is the
passive self and the other the active self. When the passive self-appears, we must make haste
in adjusting the self into the active self. This is like when a clock is showing the wrong time, we
must immediately correct it.

The ability to adjust the mental state can be categorized as EQ in Western psychology, or
emotional intelligence. EQ is a rather new measure that psychologist has proposed that is the
counterpart to IQ. Emotional intelligence mainly refers to our characteristics in the areas of
mood, emotion, willpower, and how to handle setbacks. Overall, great differences in EQ is not

Page | 42
significant between individuals but is more related to postnatal cultivation. In other words, EQ is
a prenatal “acquisition”, through studying it we may increase our emotional intelligence.

A while back, the book “The Secret” which was recommended by the host of Tudou forums is a
very good book with regards to how to increase EQ. In it the concept of the law of attraction
deals with positive and proactive thinking, and by doing so increase the chance of success. If
one always have pessimistic and dark thinking then it is the same as hypnotizing oneself and
suggesting failure for oneself, in doing so the chances for failure becomes greater. This is
similar to going to battle with a low morale which would greatly increase the chances of defeat.

EQ includes 5 main areas:

1. To be aware of our own feelings, only through knowing ourselves are we able to take
control of our lives.
2. Capable to properly manage our feelings, able to regulate ourselves.
3. Self-encouragement, which allows a person to walk away from the low ebbs in life and to
begin anew.
4. Able to recognize other people’s emotion, this is the basis for a normal exchange and
the realization of successful communication.
5. The management of personal relationships, leadership and management abilities.

All of the above abilities are obtainable through the effort of constant studying. I would
recommend reading more books in this area as books are like the steps to which humanity may
take in order to ascend upwards. Without studying there will be no understanding, without
studying rebooting there will be no success.

Lastly, let’s talk about the importance of collecting first-hand material.

First hand refers to the experience and symptoms of brothers. These material and cases are
very very valuable, many cases are very typical of their nature. Everybody would do well by
establishing a folder and gather those typical cases within, this will help us to more thoroughly
understand the harmfulness of masturbation. Many brothers collect porn videos, of course, I’ve
also done it where I have gathered a few dozens of them. The more we collect, the more
opportunities we have to indulge ourselves. On the other hand, the more case material we
collect, the more warnings we will receive; the warning to not indulge or else we will end up like
the people in the cases, by indulging we are harming ourselves. Every day when I log into the
rebooting forums and run into good cases, I would collect them. I have reviewed countless
cases and seen all kinds of symptoms, many of which I have personally experienced. The more
cases we review the deeper will our understanding become.

Regardless the area of study, it is important to deepen the understanding. The first-hand
material is matchless in its importance, whether masturbation is harmful does not require a
debate. There was a sentence: Live battle produces real understanding. Whether or not there is
harm and if a picture represents reality, one only need to look at what the brothers with ruined
health have to say, from the mouth of these victims is the most real of the truths. The theory on
the harmlessness in moderation is utter nonsense, from all the case material that I have
reviewed, there are very few people who are able to practice moderation. Most of the cases
resemble “once you pop you can’t stop”, just like the opening of Pandora’s box, once you open
it there is no going back. People that love to exercise and have healthy lifestyle habits
experience mild symptoms. Those people that dislike exercise, stay up and sits for a long time

Page | 43
have serious symptoms. One can say that as long as one has begun to indulge, there is no
escape, all methods are rendered useless, karma is not empty; masturbation plants an evil
cause, evil cause leads to evil fruit, whatever is sown will determine what will be reaped,
whatever comes out from masturbation is an evil fruit.

No matter how healthy the body is, as the age increases, symptoms will become more apparent.
Brothers that have suffered a collapse in health may see it as a blessing in disguise. How is that
so? Because the symptoms are the best teacher, when symptoms emerge we know to quit
PMO and we have recognized the reality. Otherwise, it will be more difficult to recover when one
suffers a collapse in health at the age of 50. When the health collapses in the 20s, one may
sooner recognize the seriousness of the harm. A young age allows for an easier recovery, if one
suffers a great decline in health at the age of 50+, recovery will be very difficult. I have talked
with a brother that is 50 years old, his has regular lifestyle habits with no staying up nor long
sittings, every morning he would jog and has kept up with this regime for decades, he also had
a very strong and able body. There was one weakness however and it’s his failure to recognize
the harm in sexual indulgence; every day he would engage in sex 2 times which he kept on for
several decades. According to him, after the age of 40, he clearly felt that his body was not what
it used to be. He did not pay too much attention and continued to indulge, at the age of 50 many
bodily symptoms suddenly emerged, diagnosis revealed autonomic disorders and anxiety.
Every day was like living in hell with those symptoms, the suffering was immense. This case
clearly shows that as long as one indulges, sooner or later the body will face issues. Even if you
have a healthy lifestyle, even if you love to exercise, symptoms will still show up. With the
increase in age, the number of symptoms with only grow. Therefore, one must cut the evil habit
of masturbation, even after marriage one needs to understand the importance of essence
preservation, moderate the sex life or the body may still face problems.

To learn from the mistakes of our predecessors, these cases serve as the best warning, reality,
and tutors. I hope that everybody lives as mindful people, by transforming their old vile interests
in collecting porn movies to collection case materials. Every case serves as a reminder and
warning: do not masturbate, do not indulge, or you will end up like the people in the cases.

In addition, 75 party (Translator’s note: most likely an internet user by the name of “75 party”) is
constantly spreading the theory of harmlessness. Because adolescents are lacking adequate
discriminating power and are easily confused by harmlessness theories, unable to separate
truth from falsehood, therefore, adolescents have even a greater need to look into the case
material and learn from the mistakes of the predecessors. It is vital that they cleanse the
harmlessness theories from their brains because those are toxic thoughts and must be cleared
out.

Season 10 [Soaring Eagle experience: A detailed discussion on
masturbation induced ugliness, and the recovery of neurasthenia,
anxiety and social fear]

If you have been hanging around in the rebooting forums for awhile, you will notice that the
phenomenon of turning ugly due to masturbation is extremely common. Basically, everybody
has turned uglier but the severity of the ugliness differs between individuals.

The following factors affect the process of turning ugly:

1. Prenatal constitution (under good conditions, the degradation of appearance is mild)


2. Exercise factor (those who do not love to exercise will be more severely affected)
3. Staying up and long sitting (those without healthy life habits will be more severely
affected)
4. PMO addiction level (those that are heavily addicted will be more severely affected)
5. The absorption of nutrients (Inadequate nutrients, inability to absorb nutrients all lead to
more severe ugliness)
6. Other addictions (for example internet addiction, smoking addiction or alcohol addiction
all leads to more severe ugliness)

Many people are unable to find the reason for why they have become uglier. Actually, if one
masturbates, turning ugly is inevitable. Masturbation sheds the most valuable Spirit (Translator’s
note: Spirit is the fusion of the “three treasures” in TCM; these are jing - essence, qi - energy
and shen - spirit) from our bodies, without Spirit we are listless. Everybody is familiar with
beauty pageants, in these pageants they would firstly compare the body features, secondly the
Spirit (Translator’s note: in this context, Spirit may be understood as the aura of the person) and
thirdly the cultivation in speech. If a contestant has dark circles under the eyes, dull complexion
and acne, will the judges pick this person as the winner? A person doesn’t have to look pretty,
what’s more, important is the Spirit. Many people have a good constitution, loves to exercise
and lives a life free from unhealthy habits, these people will not turn very ugly. But if you
observe closely, you will still be able to spot problems. I had a friend who was very healthy but
would masturbate regularly, although he has not turned ugly to a severe degree, you could spot
a problem if you looked at his eyes; they were always sluggish and dull. TCM: The essence and
qi in the five viscera and six bowels are all registered in the eyes. Essence resides in the
kidneys which are where the most important qi is stored. After essence and qi have been
expelled through masturbation, the eyes will easily dim and lack spirit.

After masturbation the skin is prone to run into problems, masturbation disrupts the internal
secretions, the skin would become very oily and the outbreaks of acne is frequent. The acne
would be of the stubborn form

that would persist for years and even for over a decade, this is due to the habit of masturbation.
Consulting the doctor and taking medicine cannot cure the problem of its root, this is because
essence and qi are being leaked through the evil habit of masturbation. Skin pores also tend to
enlarge, the skin texture would change from that smooth, clear and oil-free state to looking filthy,
with the skin pores enlarged and disgusting looking. The facial complexion would also become
very poor, without a hint of sunshine and always tinted with darkness, as if unable to be washed
clean. Actually, one cannot wash such a face clean, because the filthy comes from within. One
might temporarily remove the dirt from the outside but is left unable to do any cleaning on the

Page | 45
inside, masturbation injures the kidney qi and kidneys have an important function: filtering the
blood. More commonly we may call it the “washing of blood”, people suffering from uremia have
failed kidneys, they require blood dialysis. Each day the kidneys would filter through all the
blood in the body over a couple dozen times in order to keep the blood clean and fresh. When
you are sleeping the kidneys are still cleansing the blood for you. The evil habit of masturbation
would also impact on the kidneys abilities to cleanse the blood, if the cleaning is not thorough
enough, the effect will be visible on the face as uncleanness and dullness.

Many people disagree with that they have turned uglier, actually, the damage is already done;
one can simply make a comparison with a photo that was been taken several years in the past.
The ugliness that is induced by masturbation does not come from a significant change in the
facial features, instead, it is a subtle change in the Spirit. Let me illustrate this with an example:
suppose you go to the superstore to buy apples, you would typically pick your apples and go for
the lustrous and full apples while leaving alone the dull and shrunken apples, because you know
that the latter is not fresh and would not taste good. Similarly, after masturbation you are like
that “expired apple”, although your main features look more or less the same, one glance is
enough to tell the difference, it is incomparable to that former spirited you. Naturally, when the
Spirit has been depleted to a certain level, there will also be changes in the facial features.
Many brothers report sunken eye sockets, more pronounced cheekbones, smaller eyes and
similar conditions.

Modern makeup is truly magical, makeup is able to transform an ugly lady into a beautiful lady,
it is truly the 8th wonder of mankind. Besides altering the contours of the eyes, lips, the
eyebrows, makeup is even able to alter the shape of the face, it is very deceptive. Many women
take on a whole new appearance after applying makeups, besides altering the form,
makeup has another very important function and that is “brightness raising”. What is brightness
raising? It is actually “supplementing blood” and “supplementing Spirit”. Many women have
sluggish Spirit and a poor complexion, after applying makeup, however, the Spirit is immediately
uplifted, the dull and rough skin texture transformed into a smooth and bright texture like that of
a newborn child. But upon removing the makeup, she is restored to her formal state. Therefore,
we sometimes hear the story about women after marriage sleeping with their makeup on, for
fear of their husbands seeing their true face. The best makeup for men is actually through
rebooting and exercising, cultivating the health, not staying up nor sit for long durations, in 3
months time the Spirit will have recovered considerably, the effect of which far surpasses the
application of powders on the face, this is the real Spirit and not some phony makeup.

I have already talked about the issue of balding in a previous chapter. Balding has a very big
impact on the physical appearance of a person, when balding appears a person will appear to
be old. The recovery from balding is a relatively slow process, furthermore, there are serious
misconceptions in the understanding among brothers, this will make recovery even more difficult.
Girls, in general, are not fond of bald men unless he is rich, in this case, it’s unsure whether she
likes the man or his money, the question deserves suspicion. Also, after one is together with a
woman, recovering from balding is a far-fetched dream. Sex life is a constant process of
exhausting the kidney essence, without kidney essence, the hair will not return to its former lush
state. Of course, besides balding, the issue of greying is also a troublesome one, lots of grey
hair will also affect a person’s self-esteem.

All in all, ugliness is a sure byproduct of masturbation. As the age increases, this tendency of
becoming ugly will become ever more apparent. Therefore, it’s important to avoid masturbation
as much as possible, actively exercise, have timely daily schedules, learn to cultivate the health

Page | 46
and accumulate the kidney qi. The cultivation of health and beauty is interconnected, always
remember that beauty is not only a product of outer efforts, it is a projection from the inside.
TCM: Face is a mirror to the five internal organs. Different areas on the face have their
correspondent internal organs. In this season I will share 2 charts on TCM facial mapping,
everybody may take a look. In TCM there are specialized areas of facial and color diagnosis.
TCM: “Through gazing the illness can be known, through listening the illness can be separated,
through asking the cause can be determined, through feeling the organ can be traced.” The
truly brilliant TCM physician may understand the state of your five internal organs by just looking
at your face, the physician from the story of “Bian Que sees Cai Huan” is such a person; by
looking at the face the latent illnesses are made known.

Below I have gathered real cases pertaining to masturbation induced ugliness. Due to the vast
number of cases I have selected 10 of them for your reference:

Case 1: Yes, masturbation induced ugliness is something I have deeply experienced. Physical
appearance is not the most important thing to a man but it’s the Spirit of the man. I have
average looks at best but I didn’t masturbate during my middle school years and so I looked
very vital, my clear face had a brilliance to it and I never thought myself to be ugly. Since the
third grade of middle school, I started to masturbate all the way through high school and until
today, I have in fact become ugly gradually. My facial complexion is dull, my demeanor is
wretched, I would feel a bit more handsome after a period of rebooting only to return to ugliness
when I break the reboot.

Case 2: Started to masturbate since middle school and have done it for 4-5 years up until today.
I masturbate almost every day, it is very harmful indeed! I had a very healthy body before, at
home during the winter I would walk around without wearing sleeves. Now my hands and feet
are always ice cold, soaking in hot water would help very little. During middle school I was
already 180 cm tall, now I’m a senior in high school but still haven’t gained much in height. I
didn’t use to have acne but these years I’ve had a lot of acne. Long-term masturbation will turn
one ugly. Many people have commented that my appearance has changed. Back in high school,
there were a couple girls that were interested in me, nobody is interested in me today.
Masturbation also causes one to lose confidence and makes one lean towards darkness. After
prolonged masturbation, eyesight will decrease, the brain would become sluggish, ears unable
to clearly hear sounds, it’s not the fault of the ears but the weakness of the kidneys.

Case 3: I’m an 18-year-old 2nd-grade high school student and have started to masturbate since
the 1st grade of middle school for 4 years. I have the following symptoms: low energy level,
sleepy during class, poor concentration, feeling of IQ slipping lower, black eye circles, dull eyes,
dully yellow and rough skin, feeling of turning ugly (I was very handsome before), rhinitis, lack of
willpower in normal activities, easily angered, hesitant (previously I was outgoing, clever and
filled with sunshine). Now I’m absent-minded, perform activities with hesitation. May I please
ask all

people to my senior, can I still recover my old “self”? Please give me some advice, thanks.

Case 4: I’m only 18 and already I have masturbated for over 2 years. Previously I did it once
every day and even 3-4 in a day. Not only am I less healthy now but also my appearance has
changed, there is no doubt that masturbation leads to ugliness! In the past everyone
commented on how adorable I was, now my head is big but my body is small and I look like as I

Page | 47
haven’t slept. My skin would turn yellow, memory decrease and an ever increasing sense of
self-inferiority.

Case 5: I have turned ugly because of masturbation, also I have developed psychological
barriers, resentment!!! Instead of experiencing a bright lifestyle I have self-degenerate sadness.
I vow to change!

Case 6: Somebody once asked in the forums if masturbation would cause one to turn ugly?
Regarding this question I have intentionally made a comparison, I took the photos of myself
from when I was 15, 16 and compared to my recent photos, it’s as if looking at two different
persons! One is handsome, innocent and beautiful, the other with a swollen, lifeless face,
compare for yourself if you don’t believe me (don’t look in the mirror, it is most obvious in the
photos). From the evaluation of other people, the best description is that I have “grown
handicapped”.

Case 7: When I was small I could be considered handsome, but since middle school, I have
always masturbated, now I’m turning uglier by the day! Those that were less handsome but
didn’t masturbate have become ever more handsome, I’m depressed!

Case 8: I really have lots of acne on my face nowadays, also I have lots of grey hairs, the first is
from before I started to masturbate, the second is from after, there is no doubt I have turned
uglier! (Translator’s note: it is possible that I’m lacking photos in this PDF version of the author’s
book. “The first” should be referring to the first photo that I assume is attached to another
version of the book). It is all too late now! I regret being ignorant, I long to return to the past and
become a new person. Now I’m a murky juvenile, masturbation has destroyed my life. The
promising old self with a bright future has turned out like this.

Case 9: I have masturbated for 10 years, already a walking zombie and haven’t accomplished
anything, all this is a consequence of masturbation.

I have never had a girlfriend and no girls like me. I’m cowardly without a backbone, not manly,
this is also caused by masturbation!

Case 10: Since opening my previous thread it has been more than 90 days, although I haven’t
completely cut out masturbation during this time, I did manage to greatly reduce the frequency
which I consider to be a small success. However, my body continues to decay. The previous
handsome self-continues to become uglier, every time I think about it breaks my heart. Once
again I open a thread with the vow to stay clean for 100 days. I have no way back and need to
persist at all cost. I believe that my body will slowly recover, my appearance will slowly become
solemn, my studies and career will bear fruit, I will find a girlfriend. I also welcome all brothers to
join me in this struggle.

The 23 forms of ugliness that is linked to masturbation:

1. Acne
2. Balding and grey hair
3. Decadent and full complexion
4. Black eye circles
5. Sunken eye sockets, raised cheekbones

22. Dirty look on the face (very difficult to clean)
23. Marked decline in the aura of the person

Let’s discuss neurasthenia, anxiety, autonomic disorders and social fear

These 4 illnesses are similar to one another, only the emphasis differs. What they have in
common is the number of bodily symptoms that repeatedly bother you, this makes living like hell
on earth. Those that haven’t experienced the symptoms will have a hard time imagining the
feelings, this is like describing an elephant to somebody who has never seen an elephant, no
matter how thoroughly it is described it is useless. Having deeply experienced the symptoms as
a patient and as a recovered patient, I would like to share my recovery experiences and
research with everyone. Regarding anxiety and autonomic disorders, I have studied these for
over 2 years, at the time I was suffering from severe social fear and didn’t set my foot outside
the house. Every day I would chat in over a dozen QQ circles (Translator’s note: QQ is basically
the equivalent of the former MSN Messenger) simultaneously, I have chatted with over a
thousand fellow patients, the majority of them being men, over 1000 of them in total. Women
were in a minority with them totaling at around 100. Without a single exception, all of the causes
are listed below:

Male patients: staying up, long sittings, sexual indulgence


Female patients: anger, high stress, long sittings. (Also included is family misfortunes such as
the passing of relatives)

After a period of indulgences, the men would suddenly fall ill. There is usually a trigger, a
stimulant, the fundamental reason is due to a weakened body. The women would fall ill after
getting angry, once angry their autonomic nervous systems become disordered. Female
patients go through special physiological cycles to start with, their qi and blood are prone to
deterioration and if angered on top of it, problems may easily arise. For the male patients, if
they wish to recover they must learn to cultivate the health, preferably by cutting out PMO
completely, or else recovery will be difficult. For the female patients, emphasize needs to be on
the cultivation of the mind. TCM states that the 7 emotions bring about illness, negative
emotions have the potential to induce illnesses. Therefore, it is important to properly manage
one’s emotions, refrain from becoming angry and learn to peacefully deal with people and
matters.

Page | 49
Normally, those afflicted with the mentioned illnesses lean towards two areas:

1. Hypochondria
2. Hostility

Incredibly many brothers fall under the orientation of hypochondria, many have spent over ten
thousand yuan in medical diagnosis, in some cases over a hundred thousand yuan. After a
round of checkup nothing would be found, however, the symptoms are very serious and cause
one to fall apart and to panic. Under these conditions, even through repeated checkups, one
wish to go through every medical equipment in the hospital multiple times, one is still not
content. This is because the symptoms are very obvious, but why is it that no illness can be
traced, this kind of doubt would surface. Actually, this is still a misconception in the
understanding; neurasthenia, anxiety, autonomic disorders are all basic issues in the
functionality, a medical screening will not be able to detect anything, any amount of diagnosis is
of no use.

The orientation towards hostility is even more common. When chatting among brothers, one
would often see quarrels. The reason being that kidney water is insufficient which enlarges the
liver fire, one would become angry without a reason, one is prone to bickering and making a
fuss out of things. Many people after having calmed down feel regret, in reality, anger injures
the self more than it injures others, anger injures the liver. Therefore, I recommend the affected
patients to learn to cultivate the mind, control the emotions and manage one’s emotions, this will
benefit the recovery process.

In addition, many people in these chat circles would talk about symptoms but not the causes,
this is very sad, if one does not adequately understand the causes then recovery will be very
difficult. Having recognized the causes and going the opposite way will enable healing to take
place. Many brothers only talk about symptoms, talking about symptoms helps to alleviate the
nervous emotions but it does not tangibly contribute towards recovery. To recovery, one must
learn about the cause!

In the past 2 days I have just chatted with a fellow patient suffering from neurasthenia,
nowadays I do very few neurasthenia consultations, my main focus is on the rebooting forums
consultations. That patient happened to add me and we started chatting. During the time when
he was studying for the graduate exam he would stay up late and combine it with masturbation,
it was like wearing a tightening hat, his sleep was greatly affected as there was constant
insomnia. However, this patient did not realize the cause and still wants to talk about the
symptoms with me. Afterwards, I told him about the cause and that’s when he had a sudden
realization. If one doesn’t understand the cause and doesn’t change life habits and cut out
masturbation, recovery is really very very difficult. Many people have been stuck in the vicious
circle for over a decade, during
these time they would rely on daily medication to maintain themselves. This is very hard to
imagine, once a time I had taken medication for half a year on a daily basis and have developed
a dependency on the medicines. It was a too scary of an experience when I took medicines as if
having a bowl of rice. Without medicine I would feel unwell, in fact, I didn’t feel much better after
taking the medicine, that was the state of my mental state which resembled a vicious circle.
Afterwards, I completely lost faith in all medicines and stopped taking them. Upon quitting PMO
I actively exercises and learned the way of cultivating health, I recovered 50% after half a year
and after a year all symptoms disappeared. Up until now, I have completely recovered, both

Page | 50
mind and heart have returned to a normal state. To recover, the understanding must be correct.
Having a blind spot or a misconception in understanding will make recovery many magnitudes
harder.

Actually, neurasthenia, anxiety, autonomic disorders, and social fear can be considered as one
and the same illness; issues with the nerves. The expression is more or less the same, in TCM
they would call it the weakening shedding of the body or the stasis of blood and qi.

Normally the symptoms are expressed as:

1. Head symptoms, including insomnia


2. Heart symptoms, serious illness with the function of the heart
3. Intestine and lungs symptom, the disorderly function of the lungs and intestines
4. Skin symptoms, includes rashes, muscle ticks, stabbing pain, crawling ant feeling etc
5. Full body symptoms, nowhere is comfortable

Lastly, I would like to supplement the topic of the hardness of premarital sex. When replying to
questions these days I stumbled upon a few brothers, because that they had sexual indulged
themselves before marriage, their health has already suffered a collapse with the onset of
impotence and premature ejaculation. Their families would urge them to get married and
therefore creating considerable psychological conflicts for them. This kind of brothers are
“weakened before marriage”, that is, unmarried with a failing body, kidney qi heavily depleted.
By entering marriage with this type of body conditions, how can the quality of a normal sex life
be guaranteed? Many brothers have developed problems with their reproductive functions,
infertility has emerged, besides the issue
of impotence, the whole body is affected by symptoms and is a total mess. During the state of
“excessive desire following depletion” (Translator’s note: by this is meant the aroused state of
desire which arises as we are rebooting, this is the result of recovering kidney qi, depletion is
the weakening of the kidney qi following PMO) one might not be alerted, following this state is
the onset of impotence and premature ejaculation. Many brothers during this “excessive desire
following depletion” stage masturbate every day, sometimes multiple times a day and think their
bodies are very strong and able. Actually, this is the expression of a weakened body, Lao Tzu
said: To know eternity means enlightenment. Not knowing eternity is to do evil things blindly.
Eternity here means patterns. Many brothers do not understand this principle and indulge madly,
and the result? Not long afterward the body collapses, weakened before marriage if married or
meeting a girl, the result is “weakening upon the weakened”, more serious illnesses might show
up in the future. Therefore, one must put an end to premarital sexual behaviors, or else the
consequences will be very grave. Look into the cases where brothers have run into issues and
draw lessons from them and take preventive measures, this is a smart move!

Season 11 [Soaring Eagle experience: The adjustment of mentality
after relapse, non-liquidation of semen, and the penis length issue]

Every day in the rebooting forums we can see brothers that have relapsed, the posts that they
make following a relapse is always marked with great remorse. Some brothers would call
relapses “battlefield casualty”, I think this is a very good description; rebooting is like waging a
battle, we are all brothers in the same trench. We are saddened by the sight of another brother
becoming a casualty, this should, of course, spur us into rebooting and to maintain our vigilance.
The enemy camp is constantly shelling us with pink shells, the rebooting articles are our
bulletproof armor. We must increase our efforts in studying rebooting articles and in doing so
increase our awareness and the level of our determination. If you should let down your guard,
the next battlefield casualty might be you. When we see inappropriate pictures or videos we
must immediately dodge them, we must exercise the same caution to porn as we do towards
tigers and incoming arrows, we must be equipped with this kind of awareness. To reboot for
good, the awareness must be strong which is obtained through studies. Awareness and
vigilance give us the hope to successfully reboot.

For those brothers that have relapsed, there is no need to be discouraged, nobody can manage
to reboot in one try and there will be many failures before success. Before I my successful
rebooted I had also failed many times, so many times that I have lost count. I was unable to get
out of the vicious circle for well over a decade because at the time I was in a state of ignorance
with nobody to guide me and nobody to tell me what to do. Afterwards, having taken up
rebooting studies my determination increased. Roughly after a year of studying rebooting
articles and health cultivation, my awareness increased by leaps and bounds, through it I gained
deeper thinking and understanding. It is under these circumstances that I had successfully
rebooted.

There are 2 types of errors that are easy to make during reboot:

1. Rebooting without studying about rebooting


2. Rebooting without cultivating the health

Rebooting without studying is the same as brute force and blindly rebooting which both
guarantees failure. This is because the level of determination has not been raised; after the
hibernation period for desire is over, we arrive at the peak period for relapse, once there the
urge to relapse is irresistible which is often followed by multiple relapses, all
previous efforts have been washed away. I have mentioned the importance of rebooting studies
countless times in the previous articles. If you don’t study you won’t be in the knowing, your
awareness will not increase and expand. Once you have reached a certain stage in your studies
your determination will rise, with the determination you are able to defeat the temptation demon,
or else every encounter with the temptation demon will result in defeat. It is hard to avoid
starting off from a low level when we first begin our reboot, suppose that the temptation demon
is at level 100 but your determination is only at level 15, how do could you resist the temptation?
Only through studying about reboot can we raise the level of determination, once the level has
been raised, temptation demon can no longer budge us. To relapse is not scary, the scary thing
is to not study because the result from that is continuous relapses and our inability to escape
from the vicious circle.

Page | 52
Rebooting without cultivating the health is also commonly seen among brothers. Awareness
about health cultivation is precisely what many brothers lack. The awareness is also obtained
through studying about rebooting. Studying video lectures given by famous gurus and reading
health cultivation literature is very helpful towards the recovery of the body. Many people reboot
and neglect in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, they still stay up, sit for long durations and smoke,
they do not emphasize the management of emotions, for these people the prospect for recovery
is not optimistic. Other brothers while rebooting, exercises actively, lives a healthy lifestyle and
do not stay up nor engage in long sittings, this is the quick route towards recovery. Indulgence is
to cut down the health, rebooting is to maintain the health, however, rebooting is only the first
step towards cultivating the health. Rebooting alone is not enough, it is far from enough. This is
because there is more than one way to injure the kidney qi; staying up, long sittings, anger, cold
beverages, exposure to AC and etc all hurts the kidney qi.

TCM specifically talks about the 5 strains and 7 impairments. 5 strains: prolonged gazing strains
the blood, prolonged lying strains the qi, prolonged sitting strains the muscles, prolonged
standing strains the bones, prolonged moving strains the tendons.
7 impairments: overeating impairs the spleen, anger impairs the liver, intensive weightlifting,
long-term sitting, and moisture impairs the kidneys, cold beverages impair the lungs, worrying
and overthinking impairs the heart, wind, rain cold and heat impairs the appearance, fear injures
the mind.

The 5 strains and 7 impairments should be avoided. Health cultivation is a deep discipline and
the effort is made little by little, one must take care of all aspects. Once your awareness in
health cultivation has been increased, this will be very beneficial for a better recovery of the
body; because you will know what to do and what not to do, all actions that hurt the kidney qi
will be avoided at all costs.

The different types of relapse:

1. Courage increases with each failure, the will to fight is still strong
2. Self-esteem takes a blow, motivation is decreased
3. The thought to flee comes up, becomes a deserter

Brothers following a relapse should properly repent but don’t be too hard on yourself, don’t take
on too much pressure, everything may begin anew. Although you have relapsed it’s still possible
to pick up and read rebooting articles, as long as we persist in our effort to study we will finally
come to that one day where the determination is sufficient, the habit of PMO is naturally
shrugged off. This is like climbing a mountain, as long as we persist we will reach the top, many
people due to fatigue will quit halfway, those that really carry the courage and determination will
persist into the end, they will never quit rebooting lightly.

Through my research, many brothers give up because they are not sufficiently aware of the
returning symptoms (Translator’s note: returning symptoms are the symptoms that we had
experienced before rebooting) following quitting PMO. Once an addiction is laid aside there will
always be symptoms, this especially applies to PMO. By persisting in rebooting, taking care of
one’s schedules, actively exercising, returning symptoms will disappear. Although many people
have rebooted for 6 months to a year, even then there could be returning symptoms, when they
do appear this is very normal and there is no need to worry. Even healthy people will have times
when they are not feeling well, this is related to external factors and is also related to the

Page | 53
changing of the seasons; the level of yang energy in the body is different in every season, it’s
also easy to experience returning symptoms following nocturnal emissions, this why it’s
important to try to decrease its frequency. In addition, those they have wives or girlfriends will
have an easier time to waver. This is because having a woman is an obstacle towards rebooting,
with a woman, bodily symptoms will have difficulty in recovering. There is also a group of
brothers whose understanding towards the bad fruit of masturbation is not yet deep enough,
they still subscribe to the moderation theory, these people will have an easier time throwing in
the towel.

Below let’s talk about the issue of the non-liquidation of semen.

This issue appears relatively often and is also relatively common. The ejaculated substance
resembles jello or some kind of crystallized substance. When spotted it would give many
brothers a scare and causes them to panic. Actually, this non-liquidation phenomenon of semen
is very common, every day in the rebooting forums similar questions are raised. The main
illness that causes the non-liquidation of semen is prostatitis, this will affect the fertility function
and the quality of the sperm. Upon medical examinations, many brothers would encounter weak
sperm, dead sperm, deformed sperm or even no sperm.

According to TCM, the non-liquidization of semen is mainly induced by the following illnesses:

1. Insufficient prenatal kidney yang energy, or a loss of postnatal kidney yang energy,
severe and prolonged illness, damaged kidney yang energy
2. External pathogenic cold and damaged kidney yang energy both causes the semen to
congeal
3. Overindulgence in alcohol and sex, overuse of the mind, the fire manifestation of the five
emotions
4. A regular spicy diet, sweet, greasy, alcohol, the inner accumulation and heat and moist,
exogenous dampness
5. Excessive intake of cold beverages injures the yang energy of the spleen, or the injuring
of yang energy of the spleen by other illnesses, weakened spleen reaches to the kidneys
6. Weakened qi and blood stasis or the constitution of blood stasis, blockage in the
essence chamber causes the the semen to congeal

The type that is normally encountered is number 3 in the above: sexual overindulgence.
Overindulgence will easily lead to these type of issues. Once we have begun to masturbate it is
near impossible to stop, seldom is there a person that is able to practice moderation, this
“moderation” is also unknown to most people. (Translator’s note: unknown not as unheard of but
as not knowing how much is too much) So one must completely cut out the evil habit of
masturbation, or else it will be exceedingly difficult to heal the body, fertility functions will all
become affected. During my time in the rebooting forums, I have come across countless cases
of masturbation induced infertility. Only through quitting masturbation, cultivating the health and
the kidney qi will there be hope to recover the sperm quality, otherwise, we are totally wasted,
what can be done about it!?

Below let’s talk about the issue of penis length, this is a sensitive topic. Men are very conscious
of penis length, the common perception is that the bigger the better. Men with big penises feel
self-pride, those with small penises feel inferior. I use to think like this after I have come to a
certain understanding I no longer think that way. There are mysterious principles behind the
length of the penis and it is not simple as one would imagine. If the understanding has not

Page | 54
arrived, few people will be able to understand this principle and its inner workings. Today I will
discuss this topic.

The penis has an orientation towards the liver because the liver governs the muscles. Many
brothers report a smaller penis after they have started to masturbate and the lack of self-
confidence. In reality, masturbation does affect the development of the penis, because the liver
and kidney share the same source and masturbation hurt both organs. The penis is oriented
towards the liver and it, therefore, affects the length of the penis. Though there are other factors
such as genetics that plays a role in the length of the penis. If you have good genes then the
effect of masturbation will not be great. If you have poor genes and you combine it with the evil
habit of masturbation, then the chance to encounter a smaller penis will be relatively high.

12 cm is normally an adequate length of the penis, 10 cm will also do. There is no need to have
an oversized penis, an oversized penis will incur evil more easily. It is mentioned in the book
“Liu Zhuang Shen Xiang”: the owner of a big penis is lowly, he provokes viciousness and thus
must be lowly. (Translator’s note: the reader should also take the cultural aspect into
consideration as the average length of penises differ between countries). This is in contrary to
everyone’s perceptions in that bigger is better, bigger is cooler, bigger is strong and good, this is,
in fact, a relatively shallow understanding, why is it that an oversized penis is not good? Why is
it that the man with a large penis is lowly? This touches upon TCM. Without understanding the
medical principles, misunderstandings will be propagated, one may enter the grave without
knowing the principles.

I once compared masturbation to shopping, I would spend kidney qi in exchange for fleeting
moments of vile pleasure. Normally, the man with the big penis will have a relatively strong
“purchasing power”, his sexual desire will be relatively strong. From the surface, this might be a
good thing, but misfortune is disguised in blessing. The more vile pleasure that
is purchased, the more kidney qi is spent, in this way the probability of a collapse in health is
greater. Although the person may look strong today, due to overindulgence, he will meet his fate;
the chance of premature ejaculation, impotence, and various bodily symptoms. Therefore the
saying goes, desire should not be strong, the stronger the more damage. He with a big penis
incurs evil, this evil points to the evil in sexual indulgence. The first chapter [Ancient Innocence
Theory] of the TCM classic [Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor] specifically mentions about the
harm of sexual indulgence. Famous doctors from the past have had over a thousand years of
experience to draw upon, they deeply understood the danger of sexual debauchery. I have seen
many medical cases both written in the past and in the present, there are too many cases of
collapsed health as a result of sexual indulgence, as many as there are strands of hair on a cow.
If you thoroughly understood the danger of sexual debauchery, then comparing that to the
danger from severe flood and wild beasts is not an exaggeration. When your kidney qi is in the
abundance, you will not feel very much. But when your kidney qi has been depleted to a certain
level, the evil fruits will become ever more apparent, and with the increase in age, illnesses of
different forms will come knocking on the door. Abundant kidney qi wards off evil, depleted
kidney qi is the source of a multitude of illnesses!

How is it that “he with the large penis lords over the lowly”? Because in TCM: to the above,
kidneys are connected to the brain. Masturbation hurts the kidneys and so it must also injure the
brain. Concentration, memory, and willpower will all deteriorate in different degrees. When a
person is deficient in the brain then success will be hard to come by in all areas of life, being
lord of the lowly is then inevitable. Those that are really successful are often strictly self-
disciplined. Those that lack discipline may enjoy success for a while but the success will not be

Page | 55
long-lived. We all know that on average in the world, black people have the lowest IQ and Jews
the highest IQ. Black people have the largest penises, sexual promiscuity is very common in
Africa, this directly causes lowered mental capacity and a lower IQ. Jews, on the other hand,
have strict sexual inhibitions, towards sex they have strict regulations, in this way the racial IQ is
relatively high. Out of all the Nobel prize winners in the world, 22% are Jews. (Translator’s note:
the translation of this chapter was not without discomfort. My apologies if you were offended by
the contents.)

Those that have acquired the Tao will in no circumstances think that a strong sexual desire is a
good thing. In TCM: excessive desire follows depletion. When this is allowed to develop we
have premature ejaculation and impotence and all forms of sicknesses, this is then called “the
mighty dragon in shame” (Translator’s note: the mighty dragon is the excessive desire). The one
that has received the Tao will absolutely not think that a big penis is a good thing, in the contrary,
he will think that it’s a bad thing, as to why that is, I believe the reader will have understood after
reading this article.

Season 12 [Soaring Eagle experience: Adding to the issue of balding,
how to recover faster and better during rebooting]

I have mentioned the issue of balding in chapter 8, this is indeed quite a thorny issue and
likewise, the speed of recovery is relatively slow. From some websites related to balding, we are
able to see that although some brothers have been rebooting for 8 months, their balding has not
been improved, not only that but the symptoms are showing signs of getting worse. Seen such
cases, those brothers that are suffering from balding will invariably take a hit in their self-
confidence and think that it’s all hopeless, or that hair recovery will not be possible through
rebooting and all of the recovery talks is just a lie. To this I can say with 100% certainty that one
can recover from balding, however, if your balding is very severe then the difficulty in the
recovery will be relatively high.

There are mysterious principles behind the recovery from balding, many people thinks that
rebooting is sufficient but it is not so!

Those that have truly recovered from balding are relatively few, but not non-existent. Although
many people have not been able to recover completely, they have nevertheless seen
substantial improvements. You see the recovery progress of some people is not up to your
expectations, therefore, you feel that there is no way to recover and your confidence will waver.
As to why some people are not able to recover despite having rebooted for 8 months, reasons
can be found. To recover from balding through mere rebooting is far from enough, it is important
to learn the way of cultivating a good health. There is more than one way to injure the kidney qi.
Many people are rebooting but what I want to ask is, is your reboot thorough enough? Do you
still fantasize? Fantasizing is the invisible way of depleting the kidney qi and is extremely
unfavorable for the recovery process. In addition, do you stay up late, sit for long periods at a
time or tend to get angry? These three factors also greatly damages
the essence. Also, living under high pressure, taking cold beverages and exposure to AC all
damages the kidney qi and impedes the recovery of the hair.

If we compare the human body to a bottle filled with kidney qi, masturbation is only one hole in
this bottle, rebooting only blocks one of the holes while the kidney qi continues to leak through
the other holes, how do we expect to recover from balding? If the adequate amount of health
cultivating awareness is lacking, then the recovery from balding will be very difficult. Many
people are obsessed with medicines, this is why the hair growth industry is booming. But the
efficacy of these products if very limited, after all, they only target the symptoms and not the
cause, the root cause being a weakened kidney qi.

Suppose that in order to restore the hair, a kidney qi value of 5000 is required. I only used this
number as an example in order to facilitate everyone's’ understanding.

“-” signifies a minus sign

1. Masturbation (-600)
2. Long sitting (-300)
3. Staying up (-300)
4. Anger (-300)
5. Cold beverages (-100)
6. Exposure to AC (-100)

Page | 57
7. Fatigue (-100)
8. Long gazing (-200)
9. Sexual fantasizing (-500)
10. Internet addiction (-300)
11. Smoking addiction (-300)
12. Alcohol addiction (-300)
13. Overstraining (-200)
14. Nocturnal emission (-500)
15. High pressure (-300)
16. Salty diet (-200)

We have 16 points for now, many people are currently refraining from masturbation, but the
error is that of “rebooting without cultivation” with ignorance towards cultivation. They only know
to reboot and places all hope in rebooting and medicines, in this fashion, the recovery from
balding is truly quite difficult due to the number of ways to leak the kidney qi , one mishap and
kidney qi is leaked. The staying up does not mean
staying up the entire night, being awake after 11 pm counts as staying up and is very damaging
to the essence. Despite this, many people still go to bed past 11 pm, this is very unfavorable to
the recovery of the body, the work and rest schedule must be adjusted or else recovery from
balding is difficult to achieve. Long sitting can be remedied by moving about for 10 min following
every 40 min of sitting, avoid sitting for hours in one stretch. As everyone is able to see, the
recovery from balding requires the fulfillment of many harsh criteria, it can, therefore, be said
that only a few people are truly able to recover from balding, this number is not zero.

Knowing the ways that can damage the kidney qi, we need to learn to how to adjust and to
avoid these ways, in addition, we need to learn to the way of cultivating the health. Health
cultivation is a learning and can not be explained by one or two sentences. Friends that are
suffering from balding tend to pay close attention to what they eat, what products to use, but
very few people ask the question of how to cultivate the health, this is because they lack the
awareness of health cultivation. Therefore, to recover one must learn the way of health
cultivation, such as Eight Brocade exercises, standing exercises, acupressure massage,
moxibustion, meridian exercises, Chinese herbal medicine, meditation, aerobic exercises etc,
watching video lectures by famous gurus and health cultivation articles. Study more health
cultivation know-how, with a deep understanding and awareness of health cultivation you will
know what to do and what not to do. In this way one can reduce the exhaustion of kidney qi to a
minimum, persist for one year and the chances of recovering from balding will be very high.
Otherwise, if you only reboot but loses kidney qi through all the other methods, how can this
possibly work!? Hair recovery is a gradual process, one must have patience and confidence.
Otherwise, if there are misconceptions about the understanding and the position is not solid,
recovery will be very difficult. One thing should be mentioned here and that is the management
of the mood, TCM states that fright injures the kidneys. Many people are faced with losing hair,
they are stricken with fear and anxiety, food and sleep no longer have any appeal to them, this
kind of mood is detrimental to the recovery of the hair. One must learn to adjust the mood, not to
worry excessively, to not take things so seriously sometimes, calm down a bit, this mood will
benefit the recovery process.

In the above, I have listed the examples that are damaging to the kidney qi, in their respective
negative kidney qi values. After you have mastered the way of cultivating the health we then
have positive kidney qi values, when the kidney qi value has reached 5000 the hair will be
recovered, this process cannot be hastened. I have spent half a year in trying to

Page | 58
control the trend of my balding, only after a year did my hair start to become dense again. At the
time my mood was very good, moreover, I rebooted quite thoroughly, without much sexual
fantasization. I also put in a lot of effort in reducing the number of nocturnal emissions, every
day before bed I did the kidney strengthening exercises and overall managed to limit the
number of nocturnal emissions to once every month or so, at most I went through 3 months
without a single nocturnal emission. Frequent emissions are also very bad for the recovery of
the hair. Rebooting for 8 months without experiencing hair recovery is also related to nocturnal
emissions, after all, kidney qi is leaked through emissions, so one should take care to reduce its
frequency.

Some brothers have asked me about my health cultivation practices, in this chapter I have laid
them out as a way of sharing with everybody:

1. Meditation (I meditate for 1h each day, meditation is the nr 1 way to supplement the
original essence)
2. Standing exercise (standing exercise is not performed daily, sitting meditation is
performed daily)
3. Eight Brocade exercise and the Six Healing Sounds (I perform the kidney strengthening
exercises of the Eight Brocade daily and occasionally practice the Six Healing Sounds)
4. Soaking of feet in Chinese traditional herbs (once/week, mugwort leafs)
5. Meridian tapping exercise (performed regularly)
6. Moxibustion on meridians (health cultivating moxibustion is performed regularly)
7. Aerobic exercises (slow jog and ball sports, 1-3 times/week)
8. Acupressure massage (performed regularly)
9. Yam, black beans and red dates (eats regularly)
10. Keeping the diet light
11. Rest early, sleep before 11 pm

These are basically the things that I do to cultivate my health, I try to avoid activities that would
lead to a leakage of kidney qi in order to minimize its exhaustion. It’s the above mentioned 16
activities that I try to avoid, while the health cultivation practices are used to add points to the
kidney qi. In this way, there is a chance to recover the hair. For the recovery of the hair, the 3
below criteria must be fulfilled:

1. Thoroughly rebooting (sexual fantasization must also cease)


2. Health cultivation practices (these will add points to the kidney qi)
3. Health cultivation awareness (try to avoid activities that draws points from the kidney qi)

The above 3 points must be fulfilled in order to recover the hair, this goes especially for those
that are experiencing a medium level of balding, those that are experiencing a high level of
balding must take extra care to cultivate the health, recovery will otherwise be extremely difficult.
Speaking from my own experience, I have seen brothers that have managed to recover from
balding, but they are relatively few in number. One reason to why the number is so few is the
long rebooting time it takes to recover, 1 year in the minimum. People that have managed to
thoroughly reboot for 1 year is very few, on top of this, those that are able to control the number
of nocturnal emissions is even fewer. The second reason is the effort in health cultivation, many
people only reboot without cultivating the health, to recover will be even harder. Why has my
hair recovered? Because I have put in tremendous efforts into health cultivation, I have studied
TCM literature nonstop and so came to understand more and deeper than the average person,
knowing what to do and not to do and accumulating kidney qi as I go, preserve the kidney qi as

Page | 59
much as possible, and so my hair has recovered. If you don’t study you will never be in the
knowing, this is why I emphasize the importance of studying.

My recommendations for literature and videos in health cultivation are listed below:
(Translator’s note: Obviously the literature is geared towards a Chinese audience. On the other
hand, there are lots of English material that the author may not have had access to, we should
study whatever is available to us)

1. Qu Limin’s book and videos


2. Wu Guozhong’s book and videos
3. Zhong Li Ba Ren’s book and videos
4. Dan Guimin’s [Jiu Chu Bai Bing]
5. The [Yang Sheng Tang] show, many famous gurus in this show

Health cultivation is a discipline that is subjected to the knowledge spillover effect; once you
have understood the book and video of one person, you will have an easy time understand the
material from other people, it is possible to become quite specialized once one has stepped
through the door.

Everyone has seen and understood by now that the recovery methods that I have mentioned do
not only apply to balding. Any problems that we encounter as a result of masturbation, any
symptoms which include psychological issues, must be treated from two perspectives in order
for recovery to take place. The first is to reboot, the second is to learn how to cultivate the health.
By doing this the body will be able to recover relatively quickly, otherwise we might end up with
the case where many people barely notice any improvements after half a year of rebooting,
unsatisfactory results after 1 year of rebooting, this is because there are too many channels of
leakages; knowing one but not the other, knowing rebooting but not of cultivation.

I’m very fond of a sentence in the [Inner Canons of the Yellow Emperor]: “Knowledge leads to
strength, ignorance leads to aging” You knowing this mysterious principle will become strong,
others know not and continue to leak, but since you know you are able to avoid it, therefore, you
become strong, others are shedding their kidney qi value in ignorance and yet are oblivious to
the fact. The result is that your body and hair have recovered but the other person has a hard
time recovering because he is not in the knowing!

I believe that those brothers who are troubled by balding will gain a deeper and clearer
understanding towards the recovery from balding after reading this article. I am not against the
usage of hair products, but one must pay attention to rebooting and health cultivation or the hair
will have no chance to truly recover.

Season 13 [Soaring Eagle experience: The harm of premarital sexual
behavior]

Long-term reboot forum brothers sure know that many people have already exhausted
themselves before being married. This is due to the deep addiction of the evil habit of
masturbation, after having masturbated furiously over a decade alone, the body is already
severely overdrafted like an overextended credit card. Chronic prostatitis and varicocele are
both commonly seen, some brothers have even contracted neurosis and live a painful day-to-
day life, others are suffering from a very low sperm quality if not weak sperm then the lack of
sperm where fertility has been lost. Premarital indulgence also induces the decline in sexual
function, many brothers are very attentive on the level of their own sexual function. When they
have discovered the onset of premature ejaculation and impotence owing to the evil habit of
masturbation, they feel worried and hope for a quick recovery. The inadequate function of sex
and fertility constitute the hidden danger in marriage inharmonies, previously there are a couple
brothers who have had divorces due to these issues.

Premarital sexual behavior belongs to the category of nefarious wantonness which in itself is an
evil conduct that injures the body, it is particularly harmful. Many people put their bodies into an
eggshell precarious state before they even get married, sex during the marriage will be adding
upon the injury. Countries have gold reserves, the body has kidney essence reserves, don’t fool
around before marriage. The kidneys roots itself in the five internal organs, sexual debauchery
depletes the essences of the five internal organs, when the kidneys are weak, diseases of every
kind are born! In the beginning, the physical constitution is still strong, depletions are not felt, but
through the depletion accumulated through days and months, one inevitably ends up with a
symptom-ridden body. During our reboot, we must have clarity in what is nefarious wantonness
behavior, by having a concrete definition can we better avoid it.

Nefarious wantonness definition

1. Examples include wrong time, wrong place, wrong woman, virgin woman, his woman,
belonging to self,

Wrong time: dates and time that falls outside the no-sex time window rules for the reboot
Wrong place: points to the rules of sex free places of the “3 channels” (oral, urinal, anal)
Wrong woman: any sex that is not of the female sex, different sexual signs including livestock
Virgin woman: unmarried women (premarital sexual behavior)
His woman: women with a husband
Belonging to self: self-sexual act such as masturbation, sexual fantasizing all fall into the
category of nefarious wantonness

2. Besides lawful sex between husband and wife, all sexual behavior between the man and
woman that is not recognized by the laws or the moral views of the society, these are all
nefarious wantonness.

Page | 61
Even between spouses, there are limits:

1. Wrong time nefarious wantonness: Buddha’s memorial date, the six-day fast of
the Buddhist tradition, birthdays of the parents, the passing day of close relatives
(father, mother, sisters and brothers etc), menstruation period, pregnancy period,
shortly before and after giving birth.
2. Wrong place nefarious wantonness: no sex outside of the bedroom, besides the
sexual genitals, no sexual acts (example include the mouth, butt, other parts of
the body)
3. Wrong amount nefarious wantonness: indulgence after marriage without
limitations

There are many specific categories of nefarious wantonness, for


example extramarital affairs, premarital sexua behavior, living together as unmarried,
masturbation, grinding against bed and between legs, telling sexual jokes, addicted to sexual
fantasization, looking at pornographic videos and images, homosexuality, incest, having
mistress, one-night-stand, selling and buying sex, sexual fetishes, producing and spreading of
pornographic material, introducing nefarious wantonness to other people or spreading of such
material etc.

Confucius said: "There are three things of which the superior man stands in awe. He stands in
awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the
words of sages.”

Saintly teachings have taught us what is nefarious wantonness, what is accepted wantonness,
what to do and what not to do, all of these have been laid out in a clear way to us. For the man
of honor, he will surely fear the words of the holy man, this is because saintly words are the
truths that are borne out from extensive experiences and will never fade with time. If one
disobeys the principles that are taught by the saintly person, then one will surely taste the evil
fruit of karma. The saying goes that by not listening to the elderly, the damage is just ahead.
Being able to receive the instructions of the saintly is a great blessing, how many people in
today’s society are lacking in such a blessing, often they find themselves in violation of moral
conduct in both the body and the mind while being oblivious to the fact, thinking that this is all
normal. In reality, their thinking are complete upside down and in total opposition to the saintly
teachings. Under the natural law, virtue is blessed, wantonness is a calamity, the retribution is
not kind in the slightest, those who commit nefarious wantonness will, in the end, receive painful
retribution.

Those that are able to cut out nefarious wantonness are men of virtue and thus should obey the
way of morality. If one is able to stay clear of nefarious wantonness in this day and age, then
one is able to safeguard one’s bodily and mental health from the very root, as well as
safeguarding the calm order and harmony of the family. Premarital sexual behavior has long
since been a common occurrence in today’s society, many young people are already doing it.
Recall in the 70s and the 80s of the previous century, premarital sexual behavior was still
regarded to be taboo. In the 90s pornographic films went on a rampage, adding to it the poison
that is being taught by the harmful teachings of the sexologists, the atmosphere in the society
steadily deteriorated. Arriving at today, the premarital sexual behavior is already very common,
moreover, the youth of today do not feel any shame towards premarital sex, thinking that it’s
very normal, some people even regard the lack of premarital sex as something that’s shameful,
these are truly different times.

Page | 62
When it comes to sex, the youth of today’s society have completely been misleading, they have
been brainwashed by the nefarious wantonness culture, they are no longer shamed by it and
instead claims it to be honorable, in the process bragging about their history of nefarious
wantonness while looking up to the celebrities who exhibit such behavior. One night stand is
regarded as fashionable! This is truly an ignorant and sad generation. One can also say that this
generation has been corrupted by the nefarious wantonness culture, a generation of
degenerates, lacking in virtue and positive energy. Young people of today, just go out and
observe, there are very few who still carry the imposing righteousness look in their eyes. Many
youths carry an empty look in their eyes, a face belonging to someone that has been depleted
of the essence, many youths carry the look of vile tendencies with a degenerative quality, one
cannot tarry to give them a second look.
Premarital sexual behavior is actually not a kind of responsible behavior, many people begin
their relationship in a state of disorder and end up in abandon, when feelings fade the
relationship is ended, all of it is just a fleeting play. The goal from the very start has been to
have some fun and not with marriage as the goal. Premarital sexual behavior will induce serious
consequences in many fronts, it will bring misfortune for the individual, the family and the
society, the consequences are long in their duration, the retribution from nefarious wantonness
will sooner or later become apparent. In the majority of cultures and countries, the premarital
sexual behavior is not approved by public opinion, religious beliefs, moral ethics and the court of
law. Avoiding premarital sexual behavior is not only required by the law and the code of
mortality, it is needed for the future establishment of a stable family and a blissful marriage.

The harm of premarital sexual behavior towards life takes 6 main forms:

1. Depleting oneself before getting married, body with a myriad of symptoms, cannot bear to put
into words. As the age increases the family will urge one to get married, but unfortunately one’s
health is not up to par, sexual function is lacking with even infertility, therefore one is placed in
an awkward situation. In the rebooting forums, many brothers are currently in the mentioned
situation; family urges one to get married but the body is occupied with a variety of symptoms, in
addition, there is the early emergence of premature ejaculation and impotence, the quality of the
sperm is very poor, this is a difficult situation indeed. The previous frenzy in masturbation has
led to the depletion of the body, now that one is to face marriage one suddenly discovers that
one is inadequate, this is indeed a very miserable life. Furthermore, the inadequate sexual
function and the poor quality of the sperm is kept hidden from the spouse, or else one might get
looked down upon or face a possible divorce because the other party thinks one is a disposed
of person! There is no hope and future with a disposed of person whatsoever, better to let the
daughter file a divorce and marry somebody else. Previously there was a brother who
underwent divorce due to the poor quality of his sperm, there was no way to get the woman
pregnant, the end result was a divorce, that brother is very hurt and regrettable.

Many brothers are still students, due to the addiction to the evil habit of masturbation, they soon
find their mental faculties in a steep decline. After the steep decline, topics, where they have
previous understood, are no longer comprehensible, the results are foreseeable, grades drop by
a thousand leagues. When the brain power is no longer capable, life as a whole becomes very
dull, when the brain power is present, the mind is nimble in every undertaking. When the brain
power has been ejaculated, everything one does lack power, the brain always feels like a pile of
paste, the reaction is very sluggish and slow. For some brothers, following the diagnosis of
neurasthenia, the brain feels dizzy the whole day, the feeling of reality is absent as if one is
living inside a dream, one has indeed transformed into the walking dead. Brain power is the

Page | 63
battle strength, the kidney is connected to the brain, the battle between men lies in the kidneys!
When the kidneys are deficient illnesses in all shapes and forms arises, no matter if one is a
student or a worker, one should cherish the sexual energy, premarital sexual behavior should
be avoided at all cost. One should apply the previous sexual energy on proper endeavors and
transmute the sexual energy into strong support and motivation for one’s academic or working
career.

2. Premarital sexual behavior will facilitate the breaking of a relationship. Many younger people
lack any concept for responsibility, they seek the novelty of love, once premarital sex has
occurred they naturally grow tired with each other in time, arguments cannot be avoided, many
relationships have ended following arguments. Love without a sense of responsibility is like a
fast meal, it is discarded after the meal. The thought of tying up a man by using sex is not
realistic because men easily grow bored. In a mutually loving relationship, responsibility must
serve as the foundation, feelings are second to that, otherwise when feelings are absent then
breaking up is inevitable. Nowadays the values regarding love in many youths are problematic,
responsibility is completely neglected, due to its absence relationships are formed disorderly
and end up in abandonment. The feeling of love is very unreliable. There is also an expiration
date for love, past the date it is inevitable to enter into the period of weariness, just like when
you grow weary of a cell phone; in the beginning one is very fond of a certain cell phone, when
time as elapsed all feelings have disappeared, actually love is similar to this. Therefore, stable
marriages should rest on the foundation of responsibility, after that comes the mutual feeling of
affection, responsibility leads to stability and longevity and is the prerequisite for mutual
exchanges, without this prerequisite, the end result is often not too blissful. Many people are lost
in the feelings and are constantly in the pursuit of feeling, in the end, they discover that feeling is
such an illusory and intangible a thing, once being so fond of the other person ended up with the
frequent argument, to go so far as breaking up as a conclusion. The feeling will fade sooner or
later, only with the addition of responsibility can feelings be kept alive.

3. The overuse of sex before marriage will affect the quality of the post-marriage life. When a
person has depleted himself before marriage, what do you think the result will be? This is like a
broken car, swaying left to right while heading towards marriage, not long afterward breaks
down. Many people are deeply entrenched in predicaments, the whole life seems dull and
decadent. After well over a decade of frenziedly consuming pornographic material combined
with masturbation, the five viscera and six bowels have long since been depleted, one enters
marriage and faces the married sex life in this critical stage, many peoples’ bodies throw in the
towel, autonomic disorders are erupted and aggravated, or one suffers complete impotence or
another form of chronic illness. When the physical and psychological health is down, marriage
will be threatened from all sides. Previously there were a couple brothers who underwent
divorce due to inadequate sexual functions. When your sexual function is depleted, the wife
might cheat on you, great bitterness awaits.

4. Premarital sexual behavior will also increase the chances of unexpected pregnancies.
Suppose that the woman has experienced multiple abortions, this increases the likelihood of
puncturing the womb causing hemorrhage which is life-threatening. Abortion is very harmful to
women and will likely cause physical and psychological damage: 1) Bacterial infection 2)
Habitual abortion in the future 3) Unable to become pregnant 4) Surgical mishaps, life
threatening 5) Waist pain, fragile body, catches chronic gynecological illnesses 6) Inharmonies
within the family and in the career 7) Causing psychological damage such as guilt, regret,
blaming, fidgety, depression and various psychological illnesses, even the thought of suicide 8)
Sometimes one might even dream of wailing children or of being followed by unfamiliar children.

Page | 64
Doctors use to warn: do not take abortions lightly or one will pay a heavy price such as
hemorrhage, gynecological inflammation, infertility and even death. Following the procedure of
artificial abortion, the monthly menstruation may be thrown out of balance, uterine cavity
adhesions and endometriosis like consequences might negatively impact future pregnancies.
Even worse, artificial abortion might cause life-long infertility, especially for those who have had
repeated abortions are more likely to suffer from such conditions. Due to repeated scraping of
the inner membranes of the uterus, the uterus linings become thinner and the inner membranes
ever fewer in quantity, this causes fewer menstruations or even the cessation of menstruation.
Oocyte implantation due to inadequate quality of the “soil”, making the embryo enable to
develop and hence life-long infertility. Scraping often causes inflammation in the reproductive
organs, causing damage to the uterus and other internal organs or hemorrhage, even causing
life-threatening danger. Many brothers have allowed their girlfriends to undergo an abortion,
some even under multiple times. Abortion is, in reality, a form of killing and incurs very negative
karma for the future. Therefore, take measures in avoiding premarital sexual behavior, do
plentiful repentance and avoid making similar mistakes in the future.

5. The likelihood of STD transmission is also increased via premarital sexual behavior. Some
brothers not only engages in masturbation but also purchases sex, the contraction of various
sexual diseases is then made possible. Some time ago a brother due to sexual debauchery has
contracted genital warts, having genital warts is indeed to endure various pains and
unspeakable awkwardness. He spent lots of money in medical expenses but was unable to
completely cure the disease, the possibility of relapse is always around the corner, this has
caused him suicidal thoughts and the loss of hope towards life. Some people have contracted
gonorrhea, syphilis, even the contraction of HIV. Although some people have not contracted HIV
they have contracted the fear of HIV, life for these people is exceedingly painful and torturous, it
can be said that fear never ceases, life is merely being dragged on. The phenomenon of
hookup-cannon (a.k.a. One-night stand) has become popular in recent years. This kind of
chaotic sexual behavior will inevitably shoot one off into the hospital, turn one into the ashes of
nefarious wantonness and finally end up in hell. This is actually very frightening! The sexually
disorderly generation has not the face to confront the ancestors, this kind of behavior puts one
even lower than livestock! On the contrary many young people today carry this kind of behavior
with pride, there is no limit to the stupidity! There is no limit to the degeneration! The HIV
situation in China today is already showing an explosive trend. Those who fool around
everywhere will contract HIV if they are not careful when that happens one is truly dumbstruck.

6. Higher divorce rates. Premarital sexual behavior from the first appearance looks like personal
freedom, the reality of the consequences are endless, according to research statistics: married
couples that have had premarital sexual behavior, divorce rates for this group far exceeds that
of the chaste couple. Those that had premarital sexual behavior have a far easier time to
neglect responsibility, what they seek is more “feeling”, with feelings they will remain together,
without feeling it is time to separate. However, the feeling of love will fade as time goes on,
when that time comes, if responsibility fails to enter into the picture then quarrels and divorce
will be inevitable. The foundation for marriage is a responsibility which is like the foundation for
a skyscraper. Those who sexually indulge before marriage often lack the required responsibility,
many people are only in for the high in the short term, even after entering marriage they will still
abide by their old model of indulgence, not only are they still addicted to masturbation but might
even have extramarital affairs, visiting prostitutes and similar behavior, the final play of divorce
awaits them.

[Life Times] magazine reported in 2006, November the 8th, “The ever-increasing rampant cases
of STD and the number of single parents are causing the American government headache, in
order to guarantee the health and to improve the quality of its citizens, the government granted
50 million USD to the project of “self-restraint education” which promotes premarital self-
restriction. The government required that young people wait until they have past 30 years of age
before starting their sex lives. Recently, the American federal government notified the various
states the approval of utilizing dedicated subsidy in order to encourage young people in their
20s, to life a self-restrained life before getting married.

In the recent 10 years, Americans which were originally seen as sexually liberated, have begun
to promote “self-restraint education”, with the purpose of changing the concepts of the youth to
slowly return to be more traditional. According to understanding, in recent years, the Ministry of
Health and Welfare have allocated 5 million USD in federal education funds for the self-
restraining educational project, this is the education project that has been awarded a prize.

The American self-restraint educational group NAEA mainly aids the stately federal government
in the promotion of sexual education, answerings questions related to sex from the youth, and
then analyzing these questions using statistics and in doing so helping the youth to form a
healthy view towards sex. At the moment, the self-restraint educational group mainly touches on
13 topics, statistical data have shown, within the American high schools today, at least 70% of
the schools have addressed 8 of the 13 topics: self-restraint is the most effective means of
preventing pregnancy (87%), withstanding peer pressure (83%), the risk of having multiple
sexual partners (81%), students making sexual behavior decisions in order to affect others
(80%), at least 3/5 of the high schools also talks about marriage and vows (69%), the safety of
condoms (65%). In primary school, the most talked about the topic by teachers is the
development of the human body.

The self-restraint educational group will also visit various American cities, and to provide
curriculum based on the demand from the schools and on the age of the students. These
curricula are largely short-term based, not exceeding 2 months in length. The requirement for
the curriculum teachers is a postgraduate degree in psychology. The teachers would form
groups and then go out to different schools in order to give lectures, individual schools may also
apply for their teachers to join the educational programme. In 2011, the teachers have
undertaken a lesson in college called “human-based sexual behavior”. A questionnaire was then
conducted on the entire class of 150 students (with roughly 50% being female), the finding was
that 80% of the female students were virgins with the majority of them being born in the 90s.
This number is significantly higher than the ones posted in the previous years, the teachers
were very shocked by this, one teacher stated: this number increases every year, perhaps as a
result of the self-restraining education.

Afterword:

Confucius said: “There are three things which the superior man guards against. In youth, when
the physical powers are not yet settled, he guards against lust. When he is strong and the
physical powers are full of vigor, he guards against quarrelsomeness. When he is old, and the
animal powers are decayed, he guards against covetousness.” Cutting out of all sexual thoughts
and material is the first cultivation, it is also the first challenge for the youthful, this challenge
must be passed. Master Yin Guang: “Lust is the common problem in the world. Not only the low
and the middle class are obsessed by lust, even the upper class, if not vigilant in their guard,
also easily become obsessed by lust. Try and see how many of the heroes from the ancient and
modern times, firm-footed as the holy man, only because they cannot conquer lust, becomes
fools and unworthy, he who treads the evil path, difficult it is to secure many victories.” [The
Distinction between Good and Evil Karma]: “There are ten kinds of karma related to the
repeated evil indulgence. Why 10 kinds? First, a desirous heart burns vigorously. Two, the wife
is not chaste. Three, poor for growth. Four, the elimination of a good way. Five, leisurely
indulgence of both sexes. Six, the dispersion of assets. Seven, doubting heart. Eight, separation
from virtuous friends. Nine, mistrust from relatives. Ten, life is ended with three strokes” We
must learn to control our desire and not become slaves to desire, we need to learn to transmute
our sexual energies and apply it onto our careers, excessive masturbation must be avoided at
all cost. Otherwise, our five viscera and six organs are depleted along with our brain power,
such would be miserable. Let us say no to premarital sexual behavior and guard our last line in
the sand, let us be chaste and save it until after we are married, avoiding depleting ourselves
before marriage.

Season 14 [Soaring Eagle experience: black eye ring and eye bags,
grey hair, hemorrhoids and rhinitis issues in detail]

Lately while browsing the rebooting forums I’ve discovered an interesting phenomenon, that the
understanding of many brothers has cleared risen, this is evident from answering the questions.
In reality, as these brothers studies they “grow in understanding”, in the game Go, when the
players skill increase it is called “grow in qi” (Translator’s note: qi = game, not to be confused
with the energy qi), in reboot this can be called “grow in understanding”. When understanding
has been raised then the determination will also naturally increase. Through the constant study
of rebooting articles and health cultivation, the level of awareness will clearly exceed that of a
rebooting rookie. By ever persisting and increasing one’s understanding, remaining clean
forever is not far away.

What we cultivate in rebooting is the level of our determination, when the determination has
risen then rebooting will be successful. The thing we need to be aware of is when we don’t
study and when we let our guard down, else we will not be successful in our reboot.

The biggest issue that rookies have is the existence of misconceptions, all forms of doubts and
hesitation must be overcome. Through raising questions can doubts be erased, by doing so we
are able to solidify our belief, otherwise the unresolved questions will impede our rebooting
progress. For example, when many people run into withdrawal symptoms, their first thought is
the harmfulness of self-restraint, thinking that such restraint will give rise to problems. If we have
not properly understood this issue then relapse will happen easily. There are many other
misconceptions in thought and they must receive correction. To reboot one must recondition the
thoughts, or else we cannot be successful in rebooting.

Below we will enter the main topic.

Black eye ring and eye bags are two problems that I have experienced. The eye bags started to
appear when I was 19 years old while black eye rings already showed up during middle school.
Because that I loved to exercise, the black eye rings were not that serious. According to my
careful observation and experience, among those people who love to exercise, the issue of the
black eye rings would occur relatively infrequently, even when they should appear, by actively
exercising and taking care to be well rested, the problem will subside very quickly. But for
those who do not love to exercise stays up and sits for long sessions, the black eye rings would
be quite stubborn. The way of exercising that I recommend should ideally be done outdoors and
under the sun. TCM believes, sunbathing will warm up the yang energy of the body, it is an
indispensable component in health cultivation. Sunbathing allows the body to gain vitamin D
and increase the resistance of the body and preventing all sorts of illnesses.

There is skill involved in sunbathing, it is appropriate to open up both palms (Laogong


acupuncture point) towards the sun when it is rising during the morning, breathe deeply, in this
way we are able to nurture the heart and the lungs. When the sun is overhead during noon time,
especially during the winter noons, this is the most precious time for sunbathing, it’s appropriate
to remove the hat and allow the sun qi to be absorbed by the crown of the head (Baihui
acupuncture point), in this way the heart and the brain is nurtured. Afterwards, lower the head
and allow the sunshine to be absorbed in the back of the neck (Fengchi acupuncture point),
Fengchi point is the source point in the body’s defense against external negative qi.

Page | 68
Of course, one needs to take care of the degree in sunbathing, to not overdo it. 1h per day is
enough, don’t sit all day in front of the computer screen, this is very unfavorable to the recovery
of the body. It’s good to increase contact with nature, increase sunbathing and exercise.

In TCM, black eye rings arise mostly due to deficient kidney qi, inadequacy in essence and qi,
impeded arteries and veins and the loss of nutrients to the eyes. Therefore, to recovery from
black eye rings, one needs to pay attention to health cultivation, active exercising, in this way
the black eye rings will recover relatively quickly.

I remember that I had masturbated quite frequently in the summer holiday following my national
higher education entrance exam, when I looked at myself in the mirror after the holiday I saw
eye bags! Once eye bags start to appear, a person would look several years older, this gives
out a decadent look which lacked vitality. Although I didn’t know much about health cultivation at
the time, I knew that exercise would help my body to recover, therefore I would often go for a
slow jog and run for 20 laps during each session at a very slow pace. After jogging for 20 days
and then looking into the mirror, the eye bags have disappeared, the quality of the skin
improved a lot and the improvement in complexion was apparent. However, my determination
was low at the time, I was still in the brute force and blind stage, so not long afterward I started
to masturbate again,
when I again looked into the mirror, the eye bags returned again. And so I was quite troubled
during those years and battled against eye bags for a long time, but I was still unable to solve
the problem, this is because I was still masturbating. Originally, I made the eye bags vanish due
to great efforts made in exercising and resting well, but as soon as I let down my guard, eye
bags would return and not only that, my facial complexion would become a lot worse, like
expired fruit, the feeling of being all dried up and decaying. At the time I had looked into eye bag
removing surgical procedures, there is external cut and internal cut. It also came to my
understanding that the procedures will not help you to remove the eye bags completely, there
will be a chance of relapse, if you continue to masturbate, eye bags will return.

The emergence of eye bags is largely due to the lungs’ diminishing ability to dry up water, the
inferior function of the lungs, the block of Chengqi and Sibai acupoints. TCM believes: kidney is
the gate of the stomach. (Translator’s note: in a healthy person, when we intake water it is
passed onto the kidneys from the stomach, as if through a doorway. When the kidneys are sick,
that the doorway does not function properly, the result is swollenness in various areas of the
body). [Suwen] states: “Kidney is the gate of the stomach, when the gate is is malfunctioning, it
induces the accumulation of water, swollenness in the skin. Patient suffering from edema, due
to the accumulation of water” Kidneys are not only the gates of the stomach but also stores the
essences of the five viscera and the six bowels. Masturbation causes the weakening of the
kidneys, once that happens, the whole body is prone to run into issues. The issue of eye bags is
but one of the expressions from weakened kidneys, although eye bags are located above the
stomach meridian, located at the Chengqi acupoint, the root cause is still the kidneys. When the
kidneys are weakened, the function of the internal organs becomes disorderly.

Now that I have completely cut off PMO and sexual fantasization, the issue of eye bags is
nowhere to be seen, although not completely level, it is in level with a person in my age. With
the onset of eye bags, the prerequisite for recovery is to abstain from masturbation and
fantasization completely, else the recovery will be very difficult.

The issue of grey hair will be discussed below.

Page | 69
I have also been troubled by greying, although it was not a genetic condition. During my youth I
had masturbated frequently, though I did manage to take good care of my rest and nutrition,
there were grey hairs but not that many. Afterwards, I masturbated but also stayed up at night,
my eating habits were irregular, sometimes having only one meal per day, not long afterward,
many grey hairs sprouted up. I had several dussins of grey hair on every side of the head, in
addition, the vast amount of hair was falling out, over 100 strands of hair daily. At the time I
almost capitulated, I knew that it was self-inflicted karma and cannot blame anybody else, I
could only blame it on my own indulgences.

Factors which induces grey hair:

1. Psychological factors, stress, sad feelings, anxiety, fright etc will all cause premature greying.
It is the belief of modern medicine that negative psychological factors will cause spasms in the
blood vessels responsible for providing nutrients to the hair, this causes a decline in the function
with the pigment cells around the hairballs and follicles, which in turn affects the formation and
transportation of the melanin particles.

2. Experimental evidence on nutritional imbalance has shown that if black lab rats are denied
folic acid, pantothenic acid and vitamins in their diet, their hair would turn into a greyish color. In
addition, the color of the hair pigment particles is related to its metal content. The black hair
pigment particles contain copper, cobalt and iron elements, if some of these elements is missing
then the appearance of grey hair will become likely. Moreover, Grey hair will also appear under
the condition of the lack of proteins and serious malnutrition.

3. Sufferers of chronic illnesses, some people suffer from autonomic nervous disorders,
hyperthyroidism, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, internal secretion obstacles etc, the emergence of
grey hair will also be present. This is because the illnesses have damaged or disrupted the
follicles, the growth and maturation of the hairball color pigment cells, causing them to lose the
ability to secrete black color pigments and hindering the formation of melanin particles.

4. Inheritable factor, premature greying is also affected by prenatal factors to a certain degree,
where premature greying has previously occurred with parents or in the family tree.

5. Evil life habits and staying up, long sitting, sexual indulgence, all of these habits injures the
kidney qi, TCM: The splendor of the hair is rooted in the kidneys. People with these evil habits
will encounter grey hair with more ease.

My hair has now recovered, after rebooting for half a year, I can see that the root of the new hair
is black. I’m very attentive about health cultivation, this has been a beneficial factor in my
recovery. Many people reboot without cultivating the health, recovery will be relatively more
difficult. I have also eaten black colored food but have not taken them intentionally, included is
black sesame, black beans, black mushrooms which I ate often. My rebooting process was very
thorough, combined with health cultivation, this is the root cause of my recovery. On the
psychological level, I didn’t pressure myself too much, I managed my mood very well and didn’t
have many negative emotions, no anger, no complaining, no jealousy, each day went by in a
state of calmness. Many brothers will become agitated and easily angered, this is very normal
because kidney qi is not abundant, the emotional expression of being easily irritated and
angered will take place. And so it’s important to properly manage the mood, keeping one’s
emotions stable. Negative emotions are like earthquakes and have very adverse impacts on the

Page | 70
body and mind, the harm of which cannot be underestimated and is very negative for the
recovery of the body. I remember that my neighbor next door was a boy that was a couple years
older than I, he had premature greying, it was not inherited, he ate well, but the family was not in
harmony, the parents would often quarrel which caused him a large amount of pressure. To
constantly live under the shadow of domestic violence is, in fact, a greying inducing
psychological factor, when the family is not harmonious, the psychological pressure will be big.

The principle of recovering from greying is very simple but is hard to do, it is through doing
things the opposite way! Put a stop to the greying inducing factors, thoroughly reboot, learn
about health cultivation, through this the issue of greying will gradually recover. There is a
process involved, you must increase and deepen your understanding of health cultivation in
order to increase the chances of recovery. Otherwise, rebooting with health cultivation is far
from enough. I have mentioned about the specific ways to cultivate the health in chapter 12,
everybody can go and have a look.

The problem of hemorrhoids will be discussed below:

Haemorrhoids are also a very common problem, as the saying goes, 9 out of 10 men will
encounter hemorrhoids! There is another saying: out of 10 women 10 will have hemorrhoids.
The chances for women to catch hemorrhoids is also very high, this is because women have
special physiological periods and are more prone to suffer injuries in both blood
and qi, combined with long sitting, hemorrhoids will come knocking on the door. I had my first
hemorrhoids at around the age of 20, at the time I masturbated frequently. During a period of
time when I was sitting on a sagging sofa, after a while I would feel something below, that’s
when I had caught hemorrhoids. The hospital determined the hemorrhoids to be internal, by
applying the subscribed medicine the hemorrhoids would subside, but the root of the issue will
remain. Hemorrhoids brought much trouble to my life, I was unable to eat cold or spicy food, so
at the time I took extra care when eating instant noodles, spicy food would induce the return of
the hemorrhoids, stools tended to contain traces of blood. Afterwards, when I studied TCM I
understood, masturbation would induce a deficiency in the qi, when your qi is abundant there
will be no issues when sitting on the sofa because qi pushes the blood around. Sitting on a sofa
while having adequate qi will not cause stasis in the qi and blood, but once qi is deficient and
you sit on the sofa then it will cause the qi and blood stasis, hemorrhoids will easily emerge.

The anatomical cause of hemorrhoids: When a person is standing or sitting, the rectum is
situated at the bottom. Due to heavy exertion and restriction in the internal organs, the
backward flow of blood through the veins becomes blocked.

As of now, my hemorrhoids have completely healed, I did not expect it to go according to my


plan. The recovery process for my hemorrhoids was very peculiar, at first I thought that
hemorrhoids will not heal without an operation. Of course, hemorrhoids might relapse following
the operation, because, from a medical perspective, hemorrhoids arise due to obstructions of
blood reflux in the veins, therefore, operations will only help to eliminate the hemorrhoids but
cannot guarantee the recovery of the obstruction issue.

I remember 2 years ago I started to soak my feet with traditional Chinese medicine, I used
mugwort leaves purchased from Taobao. At the time I read from Dan GuiMin’s blog on curing
hemorrhoid from its root by using moxibustion. The method was to sit on a hollowed out chair,
using moxibustion to smoke hemorrhoid from the below, after approximately a week, the
hemorrhoid core would fall off and the hemorrhoid is cured. Naturally, this process is a bit

Page | 71
painful, not everybody is able to withstand it. After seeing it I didn’t dare to try it, so I used
mugworts to soak my feet, unexpectedly, after 3 days of treatment I felt that the hemorrhoid was
turning outward and becoming bigger, that’s when I knew that the warming and activating the
meridian function of the mugwort leaves were working. It was very painful when the hemorrhoid
was turning outwards
and could not sit down, sitting down was painful, I could only sit at an angle. At that time I
already started with moxibustion treatment, of course, I didn’t dare to apply moxibustion directly
on the hemorrhoids. I applied moxibustion on the Shenque acupoint, it is also the navel point,
after soaking my feet for 3 days hemorrhoid turned outwards, on the 4th day I applied
moxibustion on my navel for 40 minutes, I felt that the hemorrhoid was about to break, I
immediately pulled the anus inwards and hemorrhoid indeed broke, the core fell out. After that
incident my hemorrhoid has healed complete without further relapses.

Those brothers that are suffering from hemorrhoid may try my method, naturally, there are many
ways to treat hemorrhoids. I have only shared my own experience with everyone which I hope
to be of help.

Lastly let’s talk about the issue of rhinitis.


I have a hypersensitive constitution and suffer from allergic rhinitis. When I sneeze I sometimes
sneeze a dozen times in a row. I remember that my nose was not very healthy ever since
childhood, although I didn’t masturbate at the time, due to inadequate prenatal conditions I
would easily catch a cold due to exogenic cold, and so I often catch cold as a child and later I
got asthma. However, the rhinitis I had back then was not that serious. When entering puberty I
masturbated frequently, rhinitis suddenly becomes more serious, throughout the entire year my
nose would be stuff, it was very painful. I tried many curing methods with no avail, afterward, I
underwent an operation to remove the inferior nasal conchae which did alleviate my symptoms
a lot, but it was still not good enough, whenever there was a change of season I would run into
issues.

At the time I was in a state of ignorance and was totally unaware of that masturbation was
exacerbating my symptoms, after studying TCM I understood, TCM: essence deficiency,
nasosinusitis. When there is an essence deficiency, it would induce rhinitis, because kidneys
govern inhalation while the lungs mainly govern exhalation. If those with a weak constitution
masturbate, rhinitis would become more serious, because a weak constitution emphasizes the
point that the body is unable to handle further depletions. Everybody has different constitutions,
some people are born with a naturally strong constitution if a level of depletion is not reached
there will be no symptoms. But for me I have a weak constitution, symptoms would appear with
the slightest depletion. I remember a brother once mentioned that he had a naturally strong
constitution and would not feel cold even leaving arms exposed during winter, afterward due to
frequent masturbation he has injured the kidney yang, the four limbs would feel cold even during
the summer, the kidney yang has
become deficient. If you masturbate for a year a two the body will not have problems, but if you
keep going and have injured your body to a certain extent, then symptoms would surely appear.
Some people love to exercise and have well-ordered schedules, in those cases symptoms
would be mild. But no matter how strong the body is, after 40 years of age the body will start to
decline, by then many latent illnesses will all erupt at once, this is all caused by overindulgence
in youth. When we are young our yang qi is abundant and so we will not notice anything, as we
age, many issues would become more apparent.

Page | 72
I still have rhinitis to this day, but compared to before it is a big improvement, previously I would
feel bad every day and now I very seldom feel bad. Moreover, I have learned moxibustion, when
the nose is feeling uncomfortable, by applying moxibustion on the Hegu and Zusanli acupoints,
the obstructions would clear up very quickly. In reality, many people suffer from aggravated
rhinitis as a result of masturbation. In my vicinity several friends have it. My cousin didn’t have
rhinitis before, but then he learned how to masturbate, a few years later he also had rhinitis.
Masturbation induces kidney qi deficiency, the resistance of the body would vastly decrease
when an inner deficiency is present, outer evil would enter more easily, in this way the chances
of catching many illnesses is increased. Therefore, one must cut out masturbation and cultivate
the kidney qi. Else many illnesses will come knocking! Remember this at all cost.

Season 15 [Soaring Eagle experience: the issue of soft legs, secretion
of oil, tension disorder and scrotum dampness]

The phenomenon of soft legs is very common among brothers. It is a common sight in the
forums to see brothers relating to soft legs that are lacking in strength. In TCM this is easy to
explain, because kidneys govern the bones, also that the kidney meridian starts from the
Yongquan acupoint at the bottom of the legs and continues upwards. Therefore, following
masturbation or even nocturnal emission, the phenomenon of soft legs easily occur. This
phenomenon has also been verified in TCM, masturbation induces porosity in the bones and a
decrease in bone density. TCM also mentions the waist houses the kidneys, the kidneys runs
through the knees. A common symptom of kidney deficiency is soreness in the waist and knees,
many brothers suffer from waist pains. Many people would experience lots of pain when
bending their waist. This, in reality, is the typical expression of inadequate kidney essence, a
signal from the body to not indulge any further.

I masturbated frequently during middle and high school, when playing basketball I would often
sprain my ankle. Many times when it happened there was no body contact involved. After
having masturbated I would always feel weakness in the legs, my footing not being firm. But I
didn’t know it was caused by masturbation and I didn’t know about medical principles. Now that
I have studied TCM theory I came to understand the underlying reasons.

These days I’m watching NBA and happened to see Roosevelt from the Buffalo Bulls injure his
knees, the situation was that the overlapping ligament of the left knees was torn, the next
season is forfeited. Roosevelt’s injury was very peculiar, no body contact took place, he was
holding the ball and made a forward leap, the knee was injured. Seeing such an injury, I dare to
say that the night before the match, Roosevelt either had a nocturnal emission or was indulging,
combined with the accumulation of wear and fatigue from the frequent matches, this strange
kind of injury then happened. To this day I still remember a scene from Stallone’s Rocky 1,
Rocky’s coach told him to not touch women, touching women makes one’s legs weak and would
affect the performance during a match. In competitive sports it is taboo to touch women before a
match, touching women weakens the legs and makes one unable to properly perform many
movements, injuries also occur more easily. I have seen the boxing king Tyson’s documentary,
when commenting about his loss versus Douglas in Japan, Tyson said that he lost the match
due to
his indulgences and entered the match in a bad physical state, the consequence is easy to
imagine; defeated by a vastly inferior Douglas.

Following masturbation or nocturnal emission, one must take care to rest well, abstain from
heavy exercises in order to avoid injuries.

Below we will discuss the oil secretion issue.

Many brothers experience the secretion of oil following masturbation, this is because
masturbation causes hormonal imbalance and so the secretion of oil will occur. Of course, it is
not only limited to the secretion of oil, some brothers experience dryness in the skin. Hormonal
imbalance can be grouped into 2 categories, in the first category, there is the secretion of oil, in
the second category we have dryness of the skin. In summary, there are more cases of oil
secretions, this has to do with the different constitutions of our bodies.

Page | 74
There 2 categories of oil secretion:
1. Secretion of oil from the face
2. Secretion of oil from the scalp

Oil secretion in the face easily lead to acne and pimples, furthermore, the acne that is caused
by masturbation is often very stubborn and belongs to the stubborn form of acne, it is very
difficult to recover from if one does not cut out masturbation. When the face is always oily, it will
also affect the looks of a person. When the scalp is secreting oil it will easily lead to seborrheic
alopecia, sufferers often have thin and soft hair, sometimes it is also accompanied by scalp
dermatitis symptoms. I have specifically talked about the issue of hair loss in an earlier chapter.
Normally, mild to medium degree of hair loss is relatively easy to recover from, heavy hair loss
is relatively more difficult to recover from, there is a saying that “accumulation is hard to retrace”,
those that have the financial means can try hair implantation. After quitting masturbation, I
clearly noticed a decline in the oiliness of the skin, the same goes for the scalp, this is a sign
that the hormonal imbalance has been corrected. Therefore, in order to reduce the secretion of
oil, one must cut out masturbation, do not only expend effort on surface issues, make
adjustments from the root of the issue. Some brothers would ask, could one use oil removing
products? My answer is, one certainly can, but rebooting must be emphasized, otherwise one is
only treating the symptoms and not the cause. Only through persistent rebooting can the
hormonal imbalance return to normal, otherwise, all the product in the world can only ease the
issue but not cure it.
Let’s continue towards the issue of tension disorder.

Tension disorder can be categorized as:


1. Urinating obstacles.
2. Obstacles during sex.

Many brothers have provided the feedback: being unable to urinate when other people are
around, returned to normal when nobody is around. Other brothers have reported that when it
comes sex, there are problems with erection, this kind of nervousness obstacles is, in reality, an
expression of weakened kidney qi, when the kidney qi has been damaged to a certain degree
then this kind of phenomenon will appear. I have experienced these two phenomena myself,
normally after a period of rebooting while actively exercising, rhythmic lifestyle habits, abundant
kidney qi, nervousness obstacles will diminish substantially and even self-heal. Therefore, those
brothers with this kind of conditions should not fret too much, reboot and accumulate the kidney
qi and recovery is possible.

Lastly, let’s talk about the issue of scrotum dampness.


This is also a very common problem, the majority of brothers will have experienced this
phenomenon. With scrotum dampness one feels uncomfortable, it is a disturbing annoyance.
Scrotum dampness points to scrotum erosion, moist, itching that are due to deficiencies in the
spleen, allergy to medicines, deficiency in vitamins, fungus breeding among other factors, it is
mostly a male-specific skin disease. Scrotum dampness is the typical clinical expression of
chronic prostatitis, it is often caused by disorders in the autonomic nerves as a result of chronic
prostatitis. As one recovers from prostatitis, scrotum dampness will appear intermittently until it
disappears. Scrotum dampness is one of the typical symptoms of chronic prostatitis which is
related to frequent long sittings, working in a hot environment and varicocele. If you are
suffering from prostatitis, then your scrotum dampness is related to prostatitis.

Page | 75
Previously I have had scrotum dampness with even the appearance of eczema, it is extremely
uncomfortable, always damp like water and with the scrotum hanging loose. Normally, those
with prostatitis will all have scrotum dampness. Naturally, if you have scrotum dampness, you
can go check if you also have prostatitis. After I have cut out masturbation, exercised actively,
took care of my rest, accumulated enough kidney qi, scrotum dampness slowly disappeared,
the scrotum was also pulled upwards, prostatitis was healed. Therefore, those brothers that
have encountered scrotum dampness, the best way would be to keep rebooting, by doing so
there will be the hope of solving this trouble.

Season 16 [Soaring Eagle experience: complementary info on
nocturnal emission, harmlessness theories, theory on harmfulness
from restraining and the frequency of sex during marriage]

I have treated the issue of nocturnal emission in chapter 3 and 7, it is a big issue. Frequent
emissions harm the body greatly, in addition, relapses are made very easy following emissions,
thoughts will become swayed, this is why it’s important to decrease the number of emissions in
order to benefit the recovery process. Regarding nocturnal emissions I have recommended
kidney strengthening exercise, its result according to feedback can be divided into 2 categories.
In the first category the result is very good, many brothers really achieved having one nocturnal
emission over a month, usually 30+ days, some have achieved 40+ days, where previously it
has been 8 times/month, therefore, there is no doubt around the effectiveness of the kidney
strengthening exercise. In the other category, there is not much improvement and is very
troubling. Why is it that other people have achieved 30+ days but not me? Those who have not
made it must ask themselves this question.

In this season I will once more discuss this issue in depth, I hope it can help everyone to
deepen their understanding of the issue of nocturnal emissions.

Those brothers who have not achieved the desired results reminded me of my gym lessons
from school. The gym teacher would demonstrate a movement to everyone, those with a talent
in exercising would grasp the essentials very quickly and be able to do the move accurately. On
the other hand, there is a lot of people who have practiced the move many times without
mastering it. The content of the instruction from the teacher is the same, but the absorbing
ability and the degree of absorption are different for the students. But if you persist in your
practice, there will come a day when you have found the feeling. People with a high talent might
find the correct feeling very quickly, people with lower talent might need to spend a week, even
a month to find the correct feeling, this is the first point.

The second point, many people already possess flexible ligaments and are able to touch the
ground. However, being able to touch the ground is not enough, one must find the tightening
feeling from the stretch, increase the tightness. Many people stop short after they have touched
the ground, thinking that they have done their part, in reality, this is only the beginning, one must
thrust towards the limit and then repeat the exercise for at least 10 times under such
circumstance. Once this has been

achieved then they are doing their part, do not stop just short of reaching one’s limit. After
touching the ground, touch it with the palms, after that stand on a chair and try to touch the
ground, one step at a time. Many brothers mention that they are not flexible and are unable to
touch the ground, this is quite OK, the important thing is the tightening feeling from the stretch.
Although you are not flexible you are able to find that tightening feeling and is able to intensify it,
over time, you will naturally be able to touch the ground, not only that, when you become skilled
you will have an easy time to touch the ground with the palms. The difficulty lies in persistence,
this is a gradual process, few people are able to touch the ground with their palms on their first
try.

Point three, there are many factors that would induce nocturnal emissions. The kidney
strengthening exercise is not a panacea, if you trip over one of those factors you will still have
emission. 2 days ago I answered a question from a brother, his situation is the following; he
persists in doing kidney strengthening exercise and is able to reduce the frequency of nocturnal
emissions, but in recent days he would have frequent emissions and is very troubled by it, he
wonders about what the problem is? I then helped him to analyze and let him try to recall what
he has done in recent days. Then he replied that he has recently caught a cold and have
besides been playing basketball. Then I told him: the answer has been found, your case on
nocturnal emission has been solved. The reason for his frequent emissions is very simple, but if
you don’t understand the principle behind it, one might not figure it out during the entire lifetime.
He caught a cold, the body, in this case, is already weakened, then he goes off to play
basketball and sweat profusely, TCM: Profuse sweating hurts the yang qi, labor hurts the yang
qi. When he played basketball after catching a cold, he acted in accordance with the saying in
TCM “double weakness leads to disaster”. Fatigue is a reason for nocturnal emissions during
the night, many people over-exercise during the day, after sweating they become very tired, in
the night they then have a nocturnal emission. This kind of fatigue followed by emission is very
very common, there are many such cases among those that I have collected. The mistakes that
younger people tend to make is: over-exercising, only knows how to release but not to restrain.
When the body is weakened, care must be taken into resting, TCM has stated: He who sweats
loses essence. Playing basketball makes one sweat a lot, when the essence is suddenly injured,
nocturnal emission will easily occur at night. I have also had experiences regarding the
damaging effect of fatigue on the essences, when my body is weakened and I went for a few
sets of deep squats, during the night I had an emission. Therefore, when the body is weakened,
try to refrain from heavy exercises and avoid those exercises that would cause one to sweat
heavily, otherwise, nocturnal emission will easily occur during the night. One needs to take care
of the degree of intensity when playing basketball and also pay attention to timing, don’t go
playing when the body is weakened or is feeling unwell, emphasize convalescence. One may
perform low-intensity exercises such as taking a walk.

Factors that induce nocturnal emission:

1. Sexual fantasizing during the day


2. Fatigue during the day
3. Intake alcohol
4. Heavy meat consumption
5. Intake of supplementary medicine
6. Sleeping facing down
7. Sleeping naked
8. Sunbathing the blankets
9. Too thick blankets
10. Meditation before bed
11. Tight underwear
12. Pushing against or sandwiching the blankets
13. Improper use of moxibustion
14. Guarding the dantian while meditating
15. Staying up late and long sitting
16. Drinking too much water before bed
17. Over exercising
18. Illness
19. Weakened kidneys, dreamlessness

Page | 78
20. Spicy diet, heavy diet
21. Nervousness (including nightmare)
22. Pressing (including sleeping facing down)
23. Anger (causes disorders in blood and qi)

Regarding the issue of nocturnal emissions, I have already replied to several hundred questions.
The main causes that I have summarized are the 23 points in the above. As senior rebooter, the
things done were from “trial and error”, using what one has learned through experience and
passing these on to brothers, especially to newcomers. The misconceptions among newcomers
are very great, the correct understanding must be established for the newcomers, or else he
might never understand.

Many brothers would take notes after having a nocturnal emission, they would note down the
time of the occurrence. But what they are lacking is a thorough understanding towards nocturnal
emission, if you do not clearly recognize the causes, then there is no way to truly avoid
nocturnal emissions, the same mistakes will be repeated without knowing what has transpired. I
will name an example: to not be robbed by the thief, one must outsmart the thief, the thief is
already very smart, yet you must outsmart him as well as keep improving upon yourself.
Through this way can the frequency of the emissions be reduced to the maximum degree. If you
are able to control the frequency of the emissions to once per month, then this will be very
favorable to your recovery process. Or else, no matter how much Chinese medicine you take,
the efficiency will be reduced, because you are leaking too much!

Every emission is like solving a case, looking for clues and the triggering factor. Of course, there
is no need to deliberately look for clues if the frequency is once per month. This is because, for
ordinary people, the theory of essence overflowing is applicable. But if the frequency exceeds 3
times/month, for sure this is not due to the overflowing of the essence, but it belongs to the
abnormal state of emissions. Only when the cause has been found can we avoid it in the future,
or else if you fail to consider and summarize following an episode of emission, the result will still
be frequent emissions. According to my understanding, there are plenty of brothers who have
been bothered by the issue of nocturnal emission for over a decade, they experience aching
waist and knees, strengthless body, tinnitus, decreased brain power, the symptoms are plentiful.

I will share 2 more cases. The first is about eating too much pig kidneys, followed by nocturnal
emission. The other is about eating too much sesame, followed by nocturnal emission. Sesame
is very good, but health cultivators in ancient times only eat 2 pellets per day, why don’t they eat
more? Because eating more makes it harder to digest and to absorb, also that it induces
nocturnal emissions. Therefore, it is permitted to intake sesame, but one must pay attention to
the quantity, don’t intake a full bowl at a time as that will easily lead to nocturnal emission when
it comes to supplementary things one has to pay attention to the quantity. In addition, one
should also eat less meat, or else frequent emissions will easily occur, it will also promote desire,
remember at all cost!

Below let’s talk about harmlessness theory and the theory of harm from restraining:

Harmlessness theories tend to be very confusing and misleading because everybody knows
that after marriage there will be sexual activities, why shouldn’t there be any such activities
before marriage? Many people carry misconceptions in their thoughts and will ask such
questions, they would also agree on the idea of harmlessness from moderation. Back in the
days I was also confused by the harmlessness theory and deeply misled by it, these seemingly

Page | 79
correct theories are highly damaging to teenagers and inexperienced brothers. These theories
will allow the masturbators to sink deeper into the trap when the body is displaying symptoms it
is past the time for regrets. In the many cases that I’ve seen, brothers would always criticize the
harmlessness theory as they think that it has harmed them from the very start. Therefore, with
regards to the harmlessness theory, one’s position must be firm and resolute, there is no room
for doubts, or else it is impossible to become clean, one will only wander aimlessly in the vicious
circle.

The hole in the theory of moderation is ignoring the addictive quality of masturbation as it is
highly addictive. Once hooked, you are no longer in control, like a breached dam. Many brothers
would do it twice once they have relapsed, even indulging in several days at a time, impossible
to hold back. Why is it that after marriage, it is allowed to have a sex life? In the post-marriage
sex life, one must, of course, pay attention to “moderation”. Records since ancient times have it
noted that sexual excess weakens the body and induces illnesses. Many brothers in the
rebooting forums are already married, yet they still want to reboot, why? Because the body is
greatly weakened and is stricken with many symptoms, one must reboot or it is all finished.
Normally, I would advise those brothers with wives to have a good talk together in order to
arrive at an understanding, this is a good approach to rebooting, or else the wife might
misunderstand you and would easily lead to conflicts. Once you have practiced restraint for a
while and have accumulated enough kidney qi, by then it will not be too late to have a sex life,
as long as the health is intact we can endure temporary setbacks. Suppose that you overdrafted
on your health in advance, in the future one becomes complete impotent, that’s not the worse
news given that countless symptoms will come knocking on the door.

The guideline to post marital sex life: accumulate abundant kidney qi, use it sparingly. If
symptoms have already appeared, abstain for a while, accumulate till abundance, use again.

To put a stop to premarital sexual behavior: the purpose is to let your kidney qi go unscathed as
much as possible. Otherwise, many brothers fool around before marriage and waste away their
health, what will they resort to after marriage?

Regarding harmlessness theories, I will name an example, after seeing this everyone will know
how to treat harmlessness theories. It goes like this: Two people come up to you to talk, one
says that elephants are grey, the other says elephants are blue. The first person supports his
claim with good arguments while the latter comes up with even better arguments, this is when
you start to hesitate and don’t know who to trust because both sides have good arguments. In
this moment, I will tell you a method and that is to go see yourself what color the elephant is!
Reality triumphs rhetoric! Similarly, when it comes to rebooting, you can directly look for cases
from brothers in suffering and study them, let them speak for themselves and discover the truth
in them. Cases are the foremost precious resource, the reported conditions are the most real.

Regarding harmfulness from restraining theories, many brothers have asked about this. I can
definitely say to everyone, restraining is not harmful but with one condition, one must put an end
to sexual fantization as much as possible. Otherwise, fire meets fire while one tries to hold it
back, problems will arise. In the TCM medical records, I have seen quite a few similar cases,
induced by sexual fantization. If the cultivation of the heart is in place, then this problem will not
exist. Many monks have lived for e beyond 100 years old when the heart is properly cultivated,
restraining poses no damage to the body. Many brothers run into symptoms after they start to
reboot, then he thinks about the articles on the harm from abstaining, he immediately starts to
masturbate. In this case, he has actually not realized the withdrawal symptoms. According to my

Page | 80
experiences, almost every brother will encounter withdrawal symptoms after they start to reboot,
some are mild while others are severe, this is all very normal. When the vital energy is being
replenished, latent illnesses will naturally express themselves, persist in rebooting, the
withdrawal symptoms will vanish and the body will become successively better.

Lastly, let’s talk about the frequency of sex post marriage.

The frequency of sex following marriage is a watched topic, everyone could refer to the essay
from Sun Simiao, the king of Chinese medicine.

The way to manage the woman, if one is able to ejaculate twice in a month, 24 times in a year,
one will surely live to be 200 years old, with healthy color and no illnesses. If medicine is applied,
longevity is made possible. He who is in his 20s, one ejaculation every 4 days, in his 30s, once
every 8 days, in his 40s, once every 16 days, in his 50s, once every 20 days, in his 60s, cease
ejaculation, if the body is still strong, one ejaculation every 30 days.

This paragraph from the medicine king is reserved for married couples. Because that people in
the past marries early, people in their 20s are generally all married. Those people at the time do
not advocate premarital sexual behavior, this is because they have a deep understanding of this
area, they know that premarital behavior results in bad karma.

The mentioned frequency of sexual behavior has a condition and that is the condition that your
kidney qi is abundant. Otherwise, if your kidney qi is already depleted, if you carry on like this it
will only become more depleted, the recovery will be made endlessly more difficult.

My personal recommendation is 2 times/month under the condition that the kidney qi is


abundant, this frequency will have a little damaging effect on the body.

Season 17 [Soaring Eagle experience: how to conquer sexual
fantization, repeated phenomenon, sleepiness, pressure induced
masturbation]

Having started to reboot, sexual fantization is an issue that everyone would normally run into.
Many people are able to abstain from masturbation, but sexual fantization is like a loosened wild
horse, repeating itself every couple minutes. In TCM: the moving of the mind is followed by the
walking away from the essence. Sexual fantization belongs to the invisible form of exhausting
the Spirit, it is also very damaging to the body, therefore one must overcome it. If your head is
filled with fantization but always withholding masturbation, this will also easily give rise to
problems. To overcome sexual fantization, one must deeply recognize what it is, sexual
fantization is a thought, a thought of evil debauchery. This thought is a thing and that thing is
“fire”!
With this knowledge in place, everybody’s understanding will increase a step. Below, let’s again
consider a question: under what situations is fire easily extinguished? Everyone with a bit of
common knowledge would know, fire, in the beginning, is easiest to put out, not requiring big
efforts to do so. Otherwise, when the sparks have become big embers, then there is no way to
control it, chairman Mao used to say: sparks becomes fire, able to alight prairie. Once the fire is
greatly developed, you are no longer in control, but from the very beginning, you still have full
control. Our sexual fantization follows the same principle when the thought first arises, we
discard it right away, this is called “arisen thought is promptly cut off”, strangle the fire in its
cradle while it’s still undeveloped. Otherwise, by letting it develop the final result is to be burning
with desire, leading to the extreme likelihood of breaking the reboot. Therefore, there are tricks
to overcome sexual fantization, the trick lies in the timing, when the fantization first appears, cut
it out immediately, or else it will “flourish as it burns”. Put the thought out while it’s still a spark,
do not hesitate, do not compromise, don’t miss this golden timing at all cost, remember!

Rhyme for stopping sexual fantization: Thought arises, cut out. Thought arise, follow not.
Thought arise, be aware. Once aware, it is naught. When everyone has memorized this rhyme
then a conditional reflex can be formed, whenever a fantasy arises it is automatically discarded.
Naturally, the condition is to be able to memorize it inside and out by constantly repeating it, let
it sink into the subconscious, in this way the conditional reflex for discarding sexual fantasies
can be formed. We need to uphold a high level of vigilance and sensitivity, we cannot afford to
wait until the fantasy has been developed and then try to cut it off, it will be extremely difficult to
control it in such a state. The problem is not with the initial formation of the thought but in the
late awareness of it.

Below I will introduce two kinds of Buddhist heart cultivation methods

The first method was instructed by Master Empty Cloud, it is to not pay attention to unwanted
thoughts. When the thought comes, do not mind it, this is the same as not following the thought
we have discussed earlier, do not follow the unwarranted thought, by following it we are
strengthening it, not following is the same as severing it! Many brothers have been following vile
thoughts for a long time, this is when they suddenly discover that they are fantasizing sexual
thoughts, it is already too late at this stage, the vile thought has already taken shape like when a
small spark has become a big ember, we no longer hold the initiative when trying to sever the
thought at this time, the optimal timing has been missed.

Page | 82
The other method is called diverting thought. When the sexual fantasy appears, immediately
transform it into a Buddha’s name, it does not, of course, have to be limited to sexual fantasies
but may also include thoughts of the foolish, greedy and angry orientation. Once it appears,
transform it into a Buddha’s name, a phrase of “Amituofo” (Translator’s note: “Amituofo” is
simply the name of the Amitabha Buddha’s name in Chinese) will transform it, this is a very
good method and I use it quite a lot. As a person of Buddhist beliefs, this method works very
well for me, those brothers with a natural disposition towards Buddhism may try this method.

All in all, to be successful in rebooting, the level of sexual fantization must be surpassed.

To be able to recover the health, the frequent nocturnal emission level must be surpassed.

Rebooting is indeed not that simple, I cannot succeed simply by saying that I have a strong
willpower. To be successful, one must study rebooting articles in order to increase the
understanding and the level of determination, in doing so there is the hope to completely reboot.
Once we pause our studies or relax our vigilance, relapses will come very easily. Rebooting
must become professional, what do we mean by professional? Everyone knows the
classification of professional players and amateur players, in basketball, there are professional
basketball and amateur basketball. The same goes for rebooting, one must allow the rebooting
process to become more professional and proper through studying. Neglecting to study, you will
never turn professional and forever remain a rookie, to make a complete reboot is indeed a very
difficult task.

Those with a genuine understanding and a kind disposition are certainly the kind of people who
study persistently every day. Every day will be a day of insights, in this manner these people will
rapidly gain understanding and determination. During my long presence in the rebooting forums,

I have indeed come across many brothers who are progressing rapidly with a high level of
insights. There are also some brothers, having rebooted for a long time but have not reached
the desired results, they still have a fuzzy understanding for rebooting and with many
unresolved questions, who can one succeed under such circumstance? If you still harbor doubts
with regards to rebooting, with your footing still not being firm, to be able to successfully reboot
is no different than a pipe dream. Only through reforming the thoughts through
studying, allowing the understanding to leap forward, then there is the possibility to stay clean
for good and to never look back!

Below let’s talk about the repeated phenomenon.

Some brothers would ask, what is the difference between withdrawal symptoms and repeated
phenomenon. What these two have in common is the bodily symptoms that are present in both
cases, but there are still differences such as:

Withdrawal symptoms would normally appear after a month of rebooting. Some brothers would
not have any issues before rebooting but would run into symptoms after having started to reboot.
After rebooting the righteous qi of the body is starting to recover, latent illnesses will naturally
make an appearance, persist in rebooting and the symptoms will slowly vanish. Some brothers
don’t understand withdrawal symptoms and would panic when they appear, they would think
that it is due to refraining too much, the result is to sink back into the trap of masturbation and
unable to pull oneself out. Therefore, to be successful in rebooting, one must establish the
correct understanding, otherwise, the only failure awaits.

Page | 83
The lag of repeated phenomenon, on the other hand, is very large, some people would
experience it 3 months into rebooting, for some it would occur half a year after rebooting, for
others repeated phenomenon would show up a year later. The occurrence of repeated symptom
is very normal, according to my research, many brothers would encounter it after having a
nocturnal emission, or following staying up at night, fatigue, long sitting, anger, unhealthy diet
patterns, having a cold and other reason would all induce repeated phenomenon. This principle
is in reality very easy to understand, when your kidney qi has not yet been cultivated into
abundance, nocturnal emission and other poor living habits would all have a damaging effect on
the kidney qi, the repeated phenomenon will then occur very easily. Another reason is the turn
of the seasons, this is because the level of yang qi in the body differs in every season, normally,
the turning of the seasons is the time prone for repeated phenomenon. When the phenomenon
appears do not worry, take care to rest for a couple of days, sleep early, keep a light diet,
symptoms will slowly disappear.

Let’s now talk about the symptom of sleepiness.

The expression of kidney deficiency has a noun and its called “fond of crouching, lazy to move”,
this not only happens after masturbation, even after a nocturnal emission, people will exhibit this
kind of behavior; turning lazy, love to sleep and hard to awake. When many brothers are unable
to sleep, they would masturbate to allow themselves feel tired, this then makes it easier to fall
asleep. This kind of method is in reality very bad, when kidney qi has been depleted to a certain
degree, sleeping difficulties will arise. When that time comes, even if you masturbate before bed
you will still have a hard time sleeping. Therefore, one must change this habit of masturbation
before bed, correct it immediately. This is like a tree that is not growing straight, one must
straighten it and not allow it to follow its crooked growth.

I would like to share a case:

[I started to masturbate since I was 14, I did it very frequently. Later when I found out that
masturbation is harmful to the body I stopped, now I would often have insomnia during the night,
during the days I would have a headache and the brain feels swollen, waist aches, urine yellow,
is this due to over masturbation induced kidney deficiency! What should I do, I have not slept
properly for quite a few years!]

Brothers with a habit of masturbating before bed, this habit must be corrected. The power of
habit is very strong, one must learn to overcome it, otherwise what awaits you are symptoms.
After masturbation one becomes lazy, this, in reality, is the expression of qi deficiency. Some
people are not satisfied masturbating once but do it twice, these kinds of people would for sure
encounter premature ejaculation and impotence in the future, this is because “desire should not
be strong, strong desire destroys”, one must understand this principle.

Lastly, let's discuss the issue of pressure-induced masturbation.

According to my research and summaries, normally among brothers, there will be the
emergence of two negative orientations:

1. Masturbation before bed: with the purpose of masturbating in order to fall asleep easier,
this habit greatly injures the kidney qi, once accumulated to a certain degree the result is
insomnia.

Page | 84
2. Pressure-induced masturbation: turning pressure into masturbation behavior, this kind of
situation is also very common.

I have mentioned about masturbation before bed in the above, in the below let’s discuss
pressure induced masturbation.

Pressure-induced masturbation can be divided into several groups, there is the pressure from
seeking employment, academic pressure, pressure from parents, social relationship pressure.
Living in this world one would receive different forms of pressure, therefore there is a saying: it
is easy to be born, living is not easy, life is not easy.

Among the brothers that I have met, some have failed to find a job, some has been scolded by
the wife, by the parents, the loss of mood control, big mental pressure, under these
circumstances one seeks the comfort of masturbation and through it hoping to get rid of the
negative emotions. To be honest, I used to be like this all the time, either being scolded or didn’t
do well on an exam, on the same evening I would for sure masturbate. Masturbation was like an
outlet for relief, hoping to empty me via masturbation and then to think of nothing, a day would
simply pass in this way.

This way of relieving oneself is not worth having because it is harmful to the body, although it
may have an alleviating effect for releasing mental pressure, in summary, the harm outweighs
the benefit. Therefore, one must overcome this kind of tendency, there are other ways to clear
out the pressures of life, one does not have to rely on masturbation. A good way is through
exercising, of course, one needs to pay attention to its intensity. The way that I advocate is to
adjust the mind, pressure dislodges your psychological balance, you need to learn to adjust it
back to a state of equilibrium, allowing oneself to remain the state of tranquility. The ability to
regulate the mind is a mood managing ability, everyone may read more about emotional
intelligence related books, which will help in better managing one’s mood.

Among the brothers that I have consulted, many people relapse due to problems in the mood,
life not turning out according to expectations, pressure from life, these led to the loss of mood
control. Under these psychological conditions it is relatively easy to break the reboot when we
are not feeling too high and have no outlets, why not masturbate, just like that we have
unconsciously relapsed.

In writing this article, the purpose is to let everyone to see clearly the importance of mood
management. With a stable emotional state, only then will there be the hope of making a
complete reboot and never looking back!

Season 18 [Soaring Eagle experience: complementary info on
prostatitis, insomnia, relapse while dawdling in bed, weekend relapse]

Recently when answering questions from brothers I discovered an issue, many brothers due to
masturbation have contracted prostatitis, therefore they would pay closer attention to this issue.
They would go to prostate forums and prostate discussion platforms in order to study.
Regarding prostatitis forums, there is no need to pay a visit due to the amount of false
information and advertisement. Prostate discussion boards could be worth to visit, but it is full of
a kind of incorrect thinking, this kind of thinking has a very strong confusing tendency. When a
normal patient reads it one is prone to become brainwashed and would greatly sympathize with
that way of thinking, not only sympathizing but also help to spread the thinking. This kind of
thinking is about the harm to the prostate due to restraining, the need to ejaculate regularly for
fear of aggravating prostatitis.

I believe the more experienced reboots have all witnessed that I was once fell prey to similar
points of view, at the time I was rebooting and indeed my prostatitis has gotten worse. But
during the time I was unaware of the effects from withdrawal symptoms, and those symptoms
would show up as the righteous qi is being recovered, that the effect was only temporary and
would gradually disappear if I kept rebooting and actively exercising. When many brothers have
started to reboot and then discover the emergence of symptoms, they would right away think
about the harm from restraining and then immediately start to masturbate, the result is to once
again fall into the trap of masturbation and the inability to pull out. Furthermore, they would have
no qualms about it, because it is stated in the articles that regular emission is healthy, they
would think that such indulgences are not wrong. Actually, this is a grave error, I’m certain that
the person who wrote the article has blind spot in the understanding, he is certainly not aware of
withdrawal symptoms during rebooting, neither has he persisted in rebooting and has only
become mislead by certain immature theories, the result is the writing of such an article. The
falsehood is then spread from one to ten and from ten to a hundred, indeed confirming the
saying that falseness spreads through ten thousand books. Nowadays, prostatitis patients, in
general, believe in the theory of harm from restraining. What I want to say is that this kind of
thinking is completely false and creates great harm among people.

Why has these kinds of wrong theories become so popular?

Of course, some people have raised the point that it is a conspiracy theory, I think this is a
possibility, what do male clinics rely on to make money? Prostatitis patients are their number
one source of income, once the patient has been admitted a whole spectrum of checks awaits.
The screening bills of many patients would amount to the thousands, many treatment fees cost
up to five-figure amounts, what is the result? The result is that prostatitis is still not cured of the
root, after spending five-figure sums on treatment it is still not healed, what is the reason? Many
people during their entire life up until they die are still prostatitis patients, they have not been
cured during an entire lifetime.

Page | 86
A kind of thought has the ability to harm generations of people, if it is not corrected it may harm
several dozens of generations, this is very scary. Who is pushing this? I think there are 3
possibilities:

1. Information spread by “75 parties” (a self-proclaimed expert)


2. Intentional spreading of information by male clinics
3. People with blind spots in understanding take it for granted

Below is my criticism to point 11 of that article:

[11. Both indulgence and restraint would cause the blood congestion of prostatitis. Therefore, he
must control the degree himself: do not engage in sexual activities in the absence of biological
need. Go with the flow when there is a biological need and allow for reasonable dissipation of
the sexual energy. Ensure regular sexual activity with sexual partner, unmarried friends may
masturbate, normally have one release every 4-7 days]

Many articles on the internet have problems in their arguments. Of course, many harmlessness
theories would also take up these seemingly correct arguments. These arguments have a high
tendency to confuse the rookies and those without ample experiences.

How to discriminate between truth and falsehood? There is only one way, find a person that has
been through all this, find a realistic case.

As a person that has gone through all this, my disposition can be found below:

[Both indulgence and restraint would cause the blood congestion of prostatitis.]: I do not dare to
blindly agree with this line, so far there is no research to prove this, that restraining will induce
blood congestion.

[Go with the flow when there is a biological need]: There is also a problem with this line. After
many people have become addicted, every day they would have a biological need, should they
masturbate daily? A person must learn to overcome his desires, or else it would lead to self-
destruction, countless cases from brothers have already proven this point.

[unmarried friends may masturbate]: I have even more reasons not daring to endorse this point.
Many people have had their kidney qi weakened, they cannot sustain further injuries, should
masturbation still continue under such cases? This would only form a vicious cycle, prostatitis
patients may never hope to recover. Think for yourself, did you have prostatitis before you
started to masturbate? Certainly not. Now that due to masturbation, prostatitis have emerged,
and one still harbor the excessive expectation to cure prostatitis through masturbation, is this
not absurd?

[he must control the degree himself]: He who wrote this line has for sure not recognized the
highly addictive quality of masturbation, once addicted, one cannot control it but is controlled by
the addiction, the choice does not belong to oneself.

I used to have serious prostatitis with seriously frequent urination, I have undergone
examinations where inflammation had been found. Now I have rebooted for more than 2 years,
frequent urination has completely disappeared, my waist no longer aches and my underbelly no
longer swells. If I have believed in these unfounded falsehoods, I would still have frequent

Page | 87
urination today and can never hope to get well. To be honest, I have previously believed in the
harm from restraining, what was the result? Over a decade of unhealed prostatitis, countless
visits to the hospital, ingested a load of medicine, still not healed, only alleviated, unable to rid
the root issue!

Many people feel better but it is only temporary recovery, it is not complete healing. If he
indulges again, the illness would relapse. This is why the relapse rate of prostatitis is over 90%
because many people bear misconceptions and still agree with the absurd theory of “one
emission every 4-7 days”.

Can healing be achieved by eating medicine? No, I trust that there are prostatitis patients with
experience in undergoing the treatment. Eating medicine will in no way achieve healing, only
temporarily dampen the inflammation, no way to rid the root cause. Nowadays there have been
new inventions on all sorts of strange devices and terminologies, such as body type treatment,
the newly source peptide pass procedure, STQ high-efficiency lipid permeation repair factor,
and all the yet to come new inventions and terminologies that I believe will take place. All of
these have one goal in common: to let the patient reach after the wallet, and the treatment fee
from these advanced instruments is often tremendous, with one course of treatment normally
costing tens of thousands. If they could truly heal the ailment, then one would be willing to pay
any price, but what of the result? No ways to curing the illness with recurrent relapses.

Actually, to cure one must reform the thoughts, 30% comes from treatment while 70% is from
maintenance. Prostatitis should be actively treated but the emphasis is on maintaining a healthy
lifestyle which includes rebooting, you must accumulate enough kidney qi. Of course, there is a
lot of attention required in cultivating a good health, in season 12 I have specifically talked about
cultivating the health, everybody may have a look.

Whether or not there is harm from restraining, I have already elaborated on that in season 16,
everybody can have a look.

To restrain, one must learn to adjustment the mind. If sexual fantasization is serious, a problem
will easily occur. If your heart is properly cultivated, restraining will not have any harm. Cultivate
enough kidney qi and prostatitis will heal by itself.

For the chronic prostatitis patients that have read this article, I hope that you have gained
certain insights. After gaining the insights one is able to save medical expenses, or else the
urology department will keep waving its hand at you. Before I started to reboot, I frequently
visited the urology department, after having rebooted for 2 years, I have not returned once. Just
like this, I have saved medical expenses. Many brothers report their inability to keep the money
after they started to masturbate, precisely because masturbation hurts the kidney qi, the
spending on medical bills runs like the water, keep this in mind!

Below let’s talk about the sleeping issue: many brothers run into obstacles when it comes to
sleep, mainly in the below categories:

1. Insomnia
2. Difficult falling asleep, difficulty in entering sleep
3. Excessive dreams
4. Early awakening, includes waking up in the middle of the night
5. Shallow sleep, poor quality sleep

Page | 88
Sleep is indeed a big issue, if your sleep quality is poor, then the recovery of the body will
become relatively difficult. Yet there are many factors which cause sleeping difficulties. Normally
among brothers, the main reason is the masturbation induced loss of coordination between
heart and kidneys, besides that it is long gazing which injures the liver qi, heavy pressure is also
a reason. People that are prone to staying up late and sitting for long periods will easily
encounter sleeping difficulties. Staying up late is an important factor because it tends to be
accompanied by long starring and long sitting, the body will suffer relatively heavy damage in
this way. So in order to restore the quality of sleep, one must make an adjustment in the
working and resting schedule. Try to go to bed before 11 pm, simply close the eyes and rest if
one is unable to fall asleep. Take care to establish normal working and resting habits, staying up
late does too much damage to the Spirit.

Some brothers are unable to sleep at night when being asked it turns out that they like to take
naps at noon. When somebody takes noon naps they will have a hard time falling asleep at
night, I have had this experience. Afterwards, I stopped taking naps at noon, if I’m not too
fatigued then there is no need to take a nap, or else falling asleep in the evening will become
difficult.

Do not worry too much if sleeping difficulty shows up once occasionally. I would advise
adjusting your schedules, do not become too fatigued, learn to regulate the mood, don’t take on
too much pressure, in this way, sleeping difficulties will self-correct.

If the obstacle of sleeping is stubborn, such as serious insomnia or continuous early


awakenings and excessive dreaming, this kind of situations points to more serious injuries. The
best way is to look for a traditional Chinese doctor for treatment in combination with traditional
Chinese medicine. Afterwards, one should pay attention to the work and rest schedules, refrain
from staying up late and sitting for long periods at a time, exercise actively, learn to cultivate the
health, persist like this in half a year in order to make the adjustment back to normal. Back in the
days I suffer quite seriously from excessive dreams and insomnia,

dreams were on a daily basis, sometimes I would directly have insomnia, it was very frustrating.
Afterwards, I adjusted my working and resting schedule and learned to cultivate the health, it
took more than a year before I could recover. The reason to why it took over a year was
because my damages were quite severe. This current year is marked by abstinence and health
cultivation, I didn’t take any medicines and relied on myself. Of course, if the condition is serious,
it is still best to seek out a comparably capable TCM doctor in combination with treatment with
Chinese herbal medicine, the recovery may be speedier this way.

In order to allow for a better recovery, it is a must improve the quality of the sleep. Many people
are quite capable of eating, sleeping, and exercise and so they recover quickly. Some people
are unable to sleep or sleep poorly, to recover will be comparably more difficult for these people.
Sleep is like charging a cell phone if the electricity cannot enter, how can recovery take place?

Lastly, let’s talk about breaking the reboot while dawdling in bed and weekend relapse.

Many brothers report that relapsing is made easy when one is procrastinating in bed, also that
whenever it’s weekend then there is a relapse, while under weekdays everything is fine. Actually,
I have experienced both cases during prior years, this kind of problem is normally relatively
common among students.

Page | 89
Through my years of research and case analysis, I’ve come to discover that relapses happen
particularly often during a psychological state, this state is boredom.

While procrastinating in bed it is very boring, thoughts run wildly while laying in bed, many
people during this time like to sexually fantasize. Or during morning erection, one gazes at the
length and the firmness of the penis, under this condition it is particularly easy to relapse. The
correct approach is to not gaze at the morning wood, let the thought rise and fall by itself, don’t
gaze and don’t assist the thought, it will subside by itself. When it comes to the weekend people
have relatively more free time, the boredom mood will also appear more easily. Once the
parents have left the house or when we are shut inside our rooms, the devious mind comes
online. Students have yet a strong determination, the understanding being not very deep, during
boredom the temptation demon jumps out, this is when it’s easy to relapse. Therefore, one must
study rebooting

articles and increase the awareness and determination, keeping a high level of alert at all times
and not let the guard down.

Once you have obtained enough determination through studying, you will no longer relapse
during boredom, an upright and radiance character is achieved, one will not commit in any act
alone which one will not commit in public. When the body is upright we are not afraid of a
skewed shadow, when the heart is upright we will not be afraid of relapse due to boredom.
Otherwise, when you are doing fine normally during class but becomes bored during the
weekend, relapses will easily take place. My advice is: Do not wander away from rebooting
articles, of course, we may develop a tiresome attitude towards studying these articles. I have
mentioned this in my previous article when you are fed up with rebooting articles, one must
learn to overcome this attitude and maintain the enthusiastic attitude. You don’t have to look for
new articles, it is adequate to repeatedly browse some of your favorite articles every day. There
is another choice, and that is to look at the cases from sufferers, these articles will serve as an
alarm bell, it is the best warning. By looking at these cases every day it will allow you maintain
the state of vigilance. Otherwise, whenever you grow tired of reading rebooting articles or
become lax in your attitude, relapses will become easy. Remember at all cost!

In addition, those brothers who have the habit to procrastinate in bed must overcome this habit.
To overcome it one must be determined, tell yourself that tomorrow morning I will get out of bed
as soon as I wake up, under no circumstances will I dawdle in bed, the determination must be in
the proper place. When the mood of boredom comes up, one must learn to adjust the mentality,
allow one’s life to become enriched, the best form of enrichment is studying. The ancients have
said that studying will cure “stupidity”, I think this is very reasonable. No knowing comes from
not studying, you can study rebooting articles, cases from sufferers, or topics of your interest, all
in all, the goal is to enrich yourself.

Concluding remarks:

Today I paid a visit to the D forums for roughly a minute, that place is indeed quite messy; many
youngsters are brainwashed by indulgence ideologies, really becoming trapped within, they are
like the “frog in the boiling pot”, totally unaware of the might of nefarious wantonness. Wrong is
taken to be right, very scary, symptoms will sooner or later sort them out, I hope they will soon
come to see the truth. Here I would like to pay my deepest respect towards brothers who are
spreading the message of

Page | 90
rebooting. Perhaps your dissemination may cause misunderstanding among people who don't
understand the truth. But for sure there will be people who will gain certain insights after reading
your post, for sure some people will be returning. The reason why many people do not
understand rebooting is that they have not realized the seriousness of the harm, they take
indulgence as granted because everybody is doing the same. In reality, everybody is incorrect,
the error is boundless. Propagating rebooting is the same as telling the truth to everybody,
letting them realize the harm and establish the correct understanding. Otherwise, what awaits
them is symptoms and the hospital, furthermore, the entire quality of the life will become greatly
affected, this is because masturbation destroys the body and the mind.

The impression that D forum left me is like a polluted river, rebooting, on the other hand, is like a
clear spring. We are a product of our environment, many people on the D forums are unaware
that they have already been polluted, like entering a room filled with irises and orchids, after a
while, the scent cannot be smelled, like entering a shop selling abalone, after a while the stink
cannot be smelled. When a person has become comfortable in an environment, sensitivity and
vigilance are lost. This is like living in a city for a long time and then going into the mountains for
a while, one discovers that the air can have such freshness and purity.

Many people say that we are living in a peaceful time, I do not agree with this assessment.
There are 2 kinds of invasions, one occurs via waging wars and the other is a cultural invasion.
Even a Western island nation can have a big impact in invading the Chinese culture while
propagating restraint in their own country, vast quantities of degenerative material are being
produced. This material is then being viewed by the young of other countries, weakening their
bodily and mental strength. At the same time, young people in China today lack beliefs, not to
mention being totally incapable of self-control. Once masturbation has started, both the body
and the mind easily runs into issues. A country is made up of people, and so youth is where the
hope lies. If we cannot resist the invasion of indulgent ideology, the fate of China indeed worries
people. Being descendants of the Yellow Emperor, we should propagate more virtue, help to
awaken the people beside us. Sometimes a few sentences from you may have a life-changing
effect on another person.

Season 19 [Soaring Eagle experience: The issue of morning erection,
leakiness, bowel movement and small testicle]

In general, many brothers would pay attention to the issue of morning wood and take it as a sign
of kidney qi recovery. Morning wood would be met with happiness while the lack of which would
result in a heavy mood that lingers for the rest of the day. In reality, whether or not the body has
recovered can be expressed through many different aspects. Take a look in the mirror, is there
more spirit in the eyes, how is the complexion, the Spirit, the strength of the grip, is there
strength in the legs, or if other uncomfortable symptoms are alleviated or even disappeared,
these can all be taken as signs of recovery for the body. Morning wood is but one of many
recovery signs.

As long as rebooting is persistent, morning wood will recover itself. If you are only a teenager,
then morning erection will be relatively quick to recover. If above 25 years old or the damage
has been severe, then the recovery of morning erection will be relatively slow. Some brothers
have been rebooting while doing health cultivation for over 200 days before experiencing the
recovery of morning wood. At the time it has taken me over a year before morning erection was
recovered because at the time I was already 27 years old. Over a decade of sexual debauchery
has severely damaged my kidney qi, therefore it took over a year to recover. Although my
morning wood is recovered, it is impossible to be on the same level compared to when I was a
teenager, during which time my body was still developing, my appetite was strong and ate good
food. Back then the quality of the morning wood was high, if masturbation was not frequent, in a
week there would be 5 morning erections. But this frequency only lasted for about 2 years or
during the puberty period. Afterwards, masturbation became frequent and morning wood less
frequent. Nowadays I would have roughly 3 morning woods per week, sometimes with a high
quality, sometimes with normal quality. Now I would eat a vegetarian diet 5 days each week,
therefore, 3 morning woods per week is not so bad. Previously I had a slight orientation towards
premature ejaculation and impotence. Normally, people with these two orientations will have a
difficult time to recover their morning erections, needing at least half a year or more.

Now I don’t really pay attention to morning wood, this is all for the best if it is absent that is fine
because the degree of recovery is not expressed through morning erection alone. In other areas
I’m recovering very well, there are also many factors that affect morning wood, such as:

1. Dietary factor: the amount of kidney supplement food intake


2. Exercise factor: moderate aerobic and strength exercise is helpful towards the recovery
of morning wood.
3. Mood factor: negative mood will affect morning wood, such as anger and pressure.
4. Age factor: morning wood comes easier during puberty, as the age increases, morning
wood becomes less frequent.
5. Constitutional factor: people with a naturally good constitution will experience morning
wood more easily.
6. Illness factor: people free from latent illnesses will experience morning wood more easily.
7. Indulgent duration factor: normally, morning erection will disappear for those people with
5+ years of indulgence history.
8. Seasonal factor: the frequency and intensity of morning wood varies with the seasons.
9. Monthly timing factor: the yang qi in the body differs during different times within a given
month, the quality of the morning wood will also vary.

Page | 92
10. Withholding urine factor: sometimes the withholding of urine will induce the onset of
morning wood.
11. Fatigue factor: fatigue will damage the kidney qi, morning wood will disappear more
easily.
12. Sleep factor: people with a high quality of sleep will experience morning wood more
easily.
13. Frequent emission factor: following frequent nocturnal emission, morning wood will
vanish more easily.
14. Withdrawal symptom factor: there will be a flatline period following the onset of rebooting,
morning wood will easily become absent, by persisting with rebooting it will then return.
15. Whether or not there are other unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as staying up late, sitting
for long durations, smoking, these will all take a toll on the kidney qi and affect morning
wood.

Morning wood refers to an erection without fantization, if fantization is involved then it is not
morning wood, it is induced by your thoughts. Morning erection is really quite dangerous, why is
it dangerous? Ordinary people are not aware of this principle. This is because many people
have a shallow level of determination, they become very excited when they have morning wood
and use the opportunity to touch the penis, this touching seals the fate, one unconsciously starts
to masturbate again. Breaking the reboot due to morning wood during the weekend is very
common. When I have a morning wood nowadays, I would not care, nor would I look or touch it,
letting it rise and fall by itself. If you care a great deal about morning erection and if you are not
careful, one will tread into the evil path. When you don’t pay attention to it, it will subside by itself
and will not lead to breaking the reboot. Many people have the habit of procrastinating in bed, if
in addition to procrastination there is morning wood, then it is very easy to break the reboot,
remember at all cost!

Many people mention that their morning erection shows up sporadically, this, in reality, is very
normal, did you think that you would remain in puberty forever? Even if you are in puberty, to
have morning wood daily is also very difficult. This is due to the many factors that affect it, it is
impossible to have a morning erection every day in 365 days of the year, that is not realistic.
The reason to why morning wood shows sporadically has an intricate relationship with factors
such as seasonality, lifestyle habits, diet, and age. Normally, people living on a nutritious diet
with a strong ability for digestion and absorption have an easier time achieving morning
erections. Previously when I was on a meat-heavy diet, morning wood was more frequent
during that period. Now I eat a vegetable-based diet for 5 days a week, morning wood has
become fewer in comparison, but my mind has quieted down a lot, evil thoughts do not easily
arise. It is good to eat a vegetarian diet while booting, this is beneficial to control the desires.
Eating lots of meat will help to fuel the desire, if the determination is shallow then relapse will
come very easily. It is a personal choice to eat a vegetarian diet, it will depend on the
acceptance level of the individual. I would recommend all brothers to start with reducing the
meat in the diet, I’m also very much in favor of a purely vegetarian diet.

Below let’s discuss the issue of leakiness.

Leakiness is characterized as - due to long term indulgence and weakened kidney qi, semen
leaks under many circumstances such as:

1. Leakage after urination.


2. Leakage after bowel movement.

Page | 93
3. Leakage while on the phone with the girlfriend.
4. Semen slippage (Translator’s note: semen slippage is the leaking of semen while awake
as opposed to nocturnal emission which occurs during sleep)

Everyone will better understand the kind of leakage issues if I illustrate it with an example:
compare with a worn out water tap, no longer possible to close it shut, it will always leak. The
situation of leakage following urination is in fact very common, this, in reality, is a sign that the
kidney qi is not consolidated. Leakage following bowel movement is even more common
especially at the beginning of a reboot. Furthermore, quite a few brothers have reported that
leakage during a phone conversation with the girlfriend, even when the topic of the conversation
was not sensitive. This, in fact, is related to latent conditional reflexes. Brothers with girlfriends
have a harder time rebooting, therefore, it is best to have a talk with her, try to avoid having
premarital sex while at the same time increase one’s own heart cultivation, have a good handle
on the degree of association. Many brothers also suffer from semen slippage, if you have a
slippage occasionally that is not a cause to worry, but if it happens continuously then one needs
to make haste to seek treatment. In addition, I recommend doing more kidney strengthening
exercise. Normally, by persisting in rebooting, health cultivation and active exercising, leakage
following urination and bowel movement will cease by itself. I have previously encountered
leakage following urination and bowel movement, afterward, I persisted in performing kidney
strengthening exercises, this kind of situation would now only show up extremely rarely. Of
course, the issue of leakages is not limited to the above 4 categories, sexual fantization and
nervousness would, for example, induce leakages. Even if your kidney qi is abundant but you
are deeply immersed in sexual fantization, leakages will also occur. Therefore, one needs to
resolutely put a stop to sexual fantization and achieve the state of cutting out a thought as it
arises, in addition, study more rebooting articles to increase one’s realization and determination,
only by doing this do we have the hope of truly ridding ourselves of the evil habit of
masturbation.

Let’s talk about the bowel movement issue.

The bowel movement issue would frequently make an appearance on the rebooting forums,
because according to TCM: the kidneys govern both urination and bowel
movement. Weakened kidneys give rise to problems in both areas, we do not need to mention
more regarding urination issues, brothers with prostatitis have ample experience in this I believe.

Kidney deficiency induced issues can be grouped into 2 categories:

1. Diarrhea or unshaped stool.


2. Frequent bowel movements.

Many factors play a role in causing diarrhea and frequent bowel movements, kidney deficiency
being one factor among them. Everybody might remember that the stool quality was very good
when we were children, firstly the color is good and secondly, the shape is good. Children have
an abundance of yang qi, their child body has not yet been damaged. In the absence of other
illnesses, the digestion and absorption ability is often very good. Things are different once we
become older, firstly we indulge via masturbation, secondly, we intake more cold beverages and
spicy food, or the dietary habits may be poor, pigging out on food and drink and so on. All of
these lead to obstacles for the function of the digestive systems, screenings in the hospital will
not reveal anything, only the function has become disorderly. Children will not have issues with
taking some cold beverages because they have an abundance of yang qi which enables

Page | 94
transformation. After sexual indulgences it is no longer the same, upon taking cold beverages,
disorders may easily appear in the stomach and intestines. Therefore, it is important to mind the
diet and not yearn for cold and spicy food. If you are troubled by diarrhea or frequent bowel
movements, the best way would be to seek medical treatment, then to combine it with rebooting,
health cultivation, active exercises, keeping a mindful diet, and slowly recuperate. I have
experienced both the issue of diarrhea and frequent bowel movement. My frequent bowel
movements started after I turned 19 and it troubled me for over 2 years, it was induced precisely
by sexual indulgence and cold beverages. After I turned 26 my diarrhea started again which
was induced by exposure to AC, pigging out on food and drinks and sexual indulgences. After I
started to reboot, I frequently employed moxibustion and applied it on the Zusanli and the
Shenque acupoint and slowly recuperated, it took over 1 year of time.

Lastly let’s talk about the issue of the small testicle.

The small testicle and the shrunken testicle issue appears commonly among brothers, testicle
issues induced by masturbation are normally found to be:

1. Drooping testicles, not shrunken


2. Shrunken testicles, testicles have become smaller
3. Moist testicles
4. Spermatic cord
5. Scrotum eczema
6. Swollen scrotum
7. Itching scrotum
8. Painful testicles
9. Testicle inflammation
10. Testicle cyst
11. Cryptorchidism
12. Other illnesses

Brothers suffering from shrunken testicles should seek treatment at the hospital in order to
diagnose the seriousness of the condition.

Shrunken testicles point to the condition of shrunken and atrophied testicles, it is either on one
side or on both sides of the testicles. The characteristic is the symptom of small and soft
testicles. In the majority of the cases, it will lead to infertility. It is often aggravated by mumps or
external injuries, some may arise from prenatal conditions. Oftentimes it is caused by a
deficiency in the kidneys or caused by damage from pathogeny (TCM). Maldevelopment of the
testicles due to prenatal conditions is difficult to heal from. Shrunken testicles from postnatal
causes also require patience to heal, certain results can be achieved via TCM treatment.

The evil habit of masturbation induces kidney deficiency, continued abuse lead to shrunken
testicles, this is a common phenomenon among brothers. Therefore, as soon as the symptom of
shrunken testicles appears, treat it without delay, secondly one should complement the
treatment with rebooting and health cultivation. Once the kidney qi has been cultivated into
abundance there is the hope of returning to normal.

Some brothers would inquire about the size issue of one’s testicles not being identical in size.
Normally among ordinary people, the size of the testicles are all not identical in size, but if the

Page | 95
size difference is too large then it is best to check up on it, if the difference is small then there is
no need to worry.

Season 20 [Soaring Eagle experience:different types of relapse, the
mystery of the shooting distance, the evil fruit from masturbating
twice in a row]

Foreword:

Recently there has been a thread in the forums: [merely rebooting is not enough, herein lies the
only road towards recovery for the essence injured]. Quite a few brothers came to ask me
whether or not the words of the Silent Sun (Translator’s note: pen name of the thread starter)
were true, this given that fact that they have read the article, became anxious over the saying
that recovery isn’t possible without silent meditation. I have looked at the comment by Silent
Sun, his recommendation of “Yinshizi silent meditation method” is very good, meditation is
indeed a wonderful way of replenishing the original qi. Of course, there are many ways to
meditate and many things to pay attention to, I meditate every day but the method that I learned
is the Nan Huai-Chin silent meditation. Meditation is indeed very helpful towards the recovery of
the body during rebooting, but it is not the only way and it is not suitable for everyone. I have
talked to numerous anxiety patients, they would have a headache whenever sitting down,
afterward I recommended the standing horse-stance health cultivation method to them and the
improvement of health followed.

Some people like to meditate while others like to hold the horse-stance while standing, the Eight
Brocade and the Six-Character Formula exercises, some people would practice Taiji boxing or
the Yijin Jing. There are many Chinese health cultivation methods, one may find a method that
suits oneself. As to “exercising is nonsense” by the Silent Sun, I dare not to blindly agree,
although it is mentioned in TCM that fatigue exhausts the qi but also it is mentioned that
movement raises the yang qi. TCM does not at all oppose exercising but advocates exercising
in moderation. Blindly meditating is not necessarily the best road towards recovery, the
movement should be combined with stillness. Huatuo’s (Translator’s note: the legendary
physician from the Three Kingdoms era) Five Animal Play has the purpose of setting the person
in motion, but he didn’t tell everyone to lift stone locks (Translator’s note: basically dumbbells
made of stone which made its appearance in the army camps in the Tang dynasty). The
intensity and the style of movement in Huatuo’s Five Animal Play are beneficial to the bodily
health.

Huatuo’s famous remark: “The human body desires to labor, but should be kept in moderation,
when the blood circulates in the blood vessels, illnesses will not be born. Like that of the door
henge becomes aged when it is frozen”

This remark by Huatuo is telling us that there are rules governing exercise: to exercise, but not
overexert. When the body has been weakened, extra attention should be placed on the intensity
of the exercise. I believe that any famous Chinese traditional physician will not be against
exercising, what they oppose is over-exercising. Even for a Taoist priest, health cultivation is not
solely based on meditation. Many well known Taoist priests practice martial art in order to
combine stillness and movement, which is more advantageous to the way of health cultivation.

Page | 97
Silent Sun said “merely rebooting is useless”, I’m rather inclined to agree with this statement
because rebooting is the foundation, but health cultivation is to build the house. To only reboot
is indeed far from enough, one must learn the way of health cultivation and establish one’s own
awareness around it, the process of recovery will benefit from doing this. The silent meditation
method recommended by Silent Sun is, in reality, one of the ways of health cultivation, this way
isn’t bad, everyone may try to practice it. After having practiced it will you know its results and
whether or not it suits you. Of course, beware of the methods which are prone to lead the
practitioner off course, or else problems may arise as a result of practicing.

How to improve the quality and the speed of recovery is indeed a question for rebooting, but
more importantly is the need to reboot thoroughly, this is the key. Or else all the talk about
recovery results in nothing. This is like taking Chinese traditional medicine while still
masturbating, replenishment in the above is met with leakage in the below, there is no way to
truly recover.

There are many ways to recover the body, silent meditation is but one of those ways. A while
ago, the Tudou forum owner recommended the method of repenting which was very good, it is
through repentance that he has recovered his health. There are many ways to it, one may
choose a suitable method, those with an inclination towards Buddhism may try repentance. In
addition, besides the mentioned health cultivation practices, active aerobic exercises are
extremely beneficial to the recovery process, such as slow jogs or fast walks.

I believe that the original intention of Silent Sun is good, most of his views are without faults,
only that his attitude was a little overbearing, many people may have a hard to accepting due to
this. He wants the best for everyone, by switching to a more peaceful approach, perhaps more
people will have an easier time accepting his words.

Towards the Silent Sun, I express my gratitude, his heart is pure and I hope that he will continue
to help everyone. The atmosphere here is not hostile but is conducive to exchanges, and
through it, everyone may be promoted.

Let’s return to the main topic below.

This season is about the types of relapses, the mystery regarding the shooting distance, the evil
fruit from consecutive masturbation sessions, we will be discussing these topics thoroughly in
the below:

Relapses happen daily after a relapse one is often very disheartened, this is not hard to see. In
the start one is full of ambition with a tremendous amount of determination, after a while this
determination starts to sway, after numerous relapses, we start to lose confidence in ourselves.
Body symptoms tell you to stop indulging, by indulging further the body is finished, but the
addiction tells you to keep masturbating. The vast majority of brothers are firmly controlled
the addiction, like a stringed doll and becoming a slave to desires, losing one’s free will; aware
of the error but unable to stop, struggling bitterly in the vicious cycle.

It is not scary to relapse, still scarier it is to not study, without it the level of awareness and
determination will not increase. Brute force rebooting without studying will surely result in failure!
Some brothers would ask, is anyone able to completely reboot on the first try? To tell the truth,
out of the thousands of brothers that I came across, I have yet to see anyone succeeding on

Page | 98
their first try. Everybody has repeatedly relapsed, constantly learning from their past mistakes,
constantly studying rebooting articles to increase the awareness and determination, and slowly
succeeding in this fashion. Some people have claimed to have seen people succeeding on their
first try, actually, the definition of rebooting in one go is a bit fuzzy. Is it to have completely
rebooted once awareness has been attained or managing to completely reboot in the first
attempt? I belong to the former category and I have not relapsed since that attempt, however, it
is not my first attempt, previously I have relapsed countless times. The first time I thought to
reboot can be traced back to middle school, at the time I thought the act of masturbation was
very filthy, my constitution would clearly take a hit after masturbation. I wanted to reboot during
my teenage years but didn’t have any materials to read from or people to guide me, neither did I
have the awareness to study rebooting articles, I only forced myself to reboot with the result of
endless relapses. I think that most people have tried to reboot during their teenage years, this is
because humans have a natural rebooting instinct, the body would advise you not to indulge
any further. Trying to reboot for the first time there was a lack of experience in many areas, one
belongs to the rookie stage; first of all one lacks the knowledge, secondly one lacks the
awareness, under such circumstances, wanting to succeed on the first try is a fantasy story. Let
me illustrate with an example: have a person who has never driven a car drive a car, what is the
result? The result is sure to swivel left and right and even crash the car.

Rebooting is like learning to drive a car, one must master a complete set of theory and
methodologies, the rest relies on experience, in this way one may succeed in rebooting. You
would ask if there is anyone in this world who is able to successfully reboot on the first try, even
though that person may exist it will be one in a thousand, the person must also have a great
accumulation of virtue with the condition of coming in contact with a vast number of rebooting
articles, good aptitude in studying, exceedingly high level of awareness, like skipping a grade in
school while others have trouble to understand given a decade of time, he reaches
understanding in a month. This kind of person appears seldom and is a rebooting genius, one in
a thousand is not an overstatement, even one in ten thousand.

Rebooting must be professional. In this season I have summarized a few relapse categories,
everyone may refer to it in order to alert oneself. The saying that “knowing yourself and your
enemy, one hundred battles will result in one hundred victories”, once you know about the types
of relapses, you will then try to maintain the vigilance. It is like knowing the trick of the swindler,
you will not fall for the trick easily because you are aware of the trick, only in this case, it is not a
trick for your money, but your essence!

1. Mood relapse: boredom mood, anger or depressed mood, agitated mood, fed up mood
etc.
2. Doubting relapse: doubt sways the thoughts, the result is a relapse.
3. Enticing relapse: pictures or videos, even pornographic videos.
4. Procrastination in bed relapse: very commonly seen, must be corrected.
5. Pressure relapse: pressures from different sources.
6. Sexual fantasizing relapse: normally, fantization is the prelude to relapse, this includes
recalling memories and illusions.
7. Let down guard relapse: thinking that one has succeeded, in actuality relapse comes
once the guard is down.
8. Ecstatic relapse: when one is ecstatic it is easy to relapse, being beside oneself with joy.
9. Testing determination relapse: do not test your determination at all cost.
10. Morning wood relapse: touching the penis when having morning wood and relapse from
there.

Page | 99
11. Testing sexual function relapse: especially for premature ejaculation and impotent
patients, relapse follows trying.
12. Agitated relapse: negatively influenced by people, going to filthy places.
13. Alcohol relapse: alcohol is the matchmaker for sex.
14. Nocturnal emission relapse: nocturnal emissions give rise to swayings of the thought,
relapses occur from there.
15. Weekend relapse: bored while being alone over the weekend, the temptation demon will
easily spring out.
16. Tonic relapse: taking too much tonic, does not emphasize heart cultivation, relapses will
be easy.
17. Eating meat relapse: eating too much meat without emphasizing heart cultivation,
desires are promoted and is followed by relapse.
18. Harmlessness theory relapse: after looking at harmlessness theories one is prone to
relapse.
19. Girlfriend relapse: having a girlfriend places a higher requirement on one’s determination,
relapses is made easy.
20. Wife relapse: having a wife also places a high requirement on one’s determination.
21. Habitual relapse: when relapses become a habit, the resulting momentum is strong with
fearful consequences.
22. Holiday relapse: such as summer or winter holiday with more free time, it is easier to
lose control.
23. Evil ways relapse: no matter if it is PC muscle restriction or so-called penis enlargement
methods, these easily lead to relapses.

Below let’s talk about the mystery of the shooting distance.

Shooting distance is the distance of the ejaculation. Many brothers have reported that during the
first years from when they started to masturbate, the shooting distance was very far. Afterwards,
the distance would become shorter and shorter, semen would run down along the penis, clearly
indicating the lack of strength and inadequate pressure. This, in reality, is an expression of
weakened kidney qi. In semen, we should first look for the color, the quantity, the concentration
and the shooting distance. The further the shooting distance the more abundant is the kidney qi.
Without power behind the arrow, its flight will naturally not be very far. Only by accumulating
enough kidney qi will the shooting distance increase. Whenever the shooting distance is
shortened or the semen is flowing downwards, this is your body giving you a signal, telling you
that your kidney qi is inadequate and to not indulge anymore. If you are unable to interpret the
signal and instead stubbornly going your way, it is like the saying of not shedding tears until
seeing the coffin.

Many people only see the semen but they miss the “archer” behind the shot, who is no longer
capable. Semen replenishes relatively quickly, rest for a few days, eat well and it will recover.
But for the “archer” to recover, that is a very slow process, it may require several months and
even longer to recover the original qi. Therefore, do not restrict your line of sight on semen
alone, but look to the “archer”. If that person is already incapable and cannot shoot far, it is
pointing to the need to reboot and to cease the indulgences, to cultivate the health, otherwise,
the only thing that awaits you is symptoms and the hospital.

That “archer” is the kidney qi. Since he is already incapable of shooting long distances and is
tired, let him shoot no more, let him have a rest, or else the accumulation will give rise to
illnesses, remember at all cost!

Lastly, let’s talk about the evil karma from masturbating twice in a row.

If you go visit the forums for autonomic disorders, then you will know the patient called sg552.
His illness was induced by long-term sitting for long durations and masturbating twice
consecutively, that’s when the feeling of nearing death appeared. Masturbating 2 times
consecutively is really too damaging to the body, it has been stated in TCM long ago: desire
should not be strong. In [Thousand Golden Prescriptions] it is mentioned: strong force bestows
leakage, becoming a strain. Especially for consecutive masturbation sessions, this is truly a
taboo. The emergence of orientation towards prostatitis and premature ejaculation easily arises
following 2 in a row masturbation sessions. This is actually induced by the human weakness of
greed towards desire. In the pursuit to satisfy oneself, the results are to harm the self!

The reason to why many people masturbate twice in a row is because: the first time went too
quick and was not intense enough. It is precisely this greed towards desire that enables their
self-destruction. This kind of examples of self-destruction is too many. We must keep in mind
the lessons from TCM on the destructiveness of a strong desire, refrain from doing stupid things,
if you are unaware of this principle then you are both ignorant and fearless, the result being
making yourself miserable. If you know this principle but still indulges, then you are seeking
annihilation! Many people are unable to conquer their addictions and so they commit this kind of
errors, like wrapped under a spell, repeating only after they have relapsed. Therefore, we must
nip in the bud, properly manage our thoughts and put an end to sexual fantization, or else when
the flame has sprung up, it will no longer be within your control.

Concluding remarks:

Summer approaches, quite a few brothers report increased hair loss, they are anxious over this.
In reality, the factors that induce hair loss is many, seasonal changes being one of them. Lately
I lose up to 20 strands of hair per day compared to up to 5 strands of hair previously, this is
actually caused by the change of the seasons and not by masturbation. So in this matter,
everybody should have a clear understanding, or else the confidence is prone to be swayed and
thus turns into the act of masturbation. Among that factors that induce relapse I have talked
about the “doubt factor of relapse”, if you have doubt in your heart, the chances of relapse will
be great. Normally during summer, the secretion of sweat and oil is exuberant, this combined
with stronger UV rays will cause damage to the hair. In this way, we may see more cases of hair
loss, this is not only limited to humans, if you observe animals such as pet dogs, they also go
undergo heavy hair loss during summer.

One brother puts it very neatly, rebooting is a process of system engineering. One must carry
out rebooting as professionally as able, increase one’s knowledge to the maximum, becoming
an insider in rebooting. By neglecting to study one is always an outsider, remaining on the level
of the rookie, to successfully reboot will then become very difficult. When everybody has gained
the awareness for studying, after a while, you will notice that your awareness and determination
have both increased. As long as one continues to study, complete understanding will not be far
away. Complete understanding together with maintained vigilance equals completely successful
reboot, fight on!

Season 21 [Soaring Eagle experience: Stomach pain following
masturbation, fantization induced illnesses, drooping testicles]

Foreword:

Recently I saw a report made by a brother, his relapse was due to looking at the material with
suggestive content.

In reality, this kind of relapse is due to temptation. Many brothers previously have already
reported similar circumstances, although some brothers have already started to reboot when
they see written material regarding the sexes on the magazines, suddenly their interests are
aroused, the result is that their vigilance is relaxed as they keep reading leading to breaking the
reboot. Some other brother would claim that he does not search for pornographic images but
only innocent looking girls, he would search for girls with nice figures without going into nudity.
This kind of brothers actually has a very easy time to relapse, because they are still addicted to
women, although they search for innocent pictures. How can a person not get his shoes wet if
he often takes a stroll along the river banks, like the Buddhist saying goes: by clinging to outer
appearances one is prone to be obsessed.

Moreover, there are issues with both the avatar and the signature of many brothers, half the
battle is already lost before they try to reboot because they are not determined enough! To
reboot thoroughly, one must cut out thoroughly, not only should one abstain from looking at
pornographic contents, but even more dangerous are all the suggestive material, the level of
vigilance must be raised. The vigilance is maintained every day during the reboot, manage your
heart well and conquer the obsession.

We enter into the main material in the below.

In this season we will talk about belly ache following masturbation, illnesses induced by sexual
fantization and drooping testicles in detail, found in the below:

Threads regarding stomach pain following masturbation does not appear every day, but it does
show up from time to time. I have experienced stomach pain following masturbation previously.
When it appears, the normal consideration is prostatitis or varicocele. The pain would normally
arrive following masturbation or on the next day. If the pain is serious and does not subside, one
is advised to seek treatment immediately. If the pain is not that serious but bearable, I still
recommend to check it out in the hospital, checking the prostatic fluid and doing a supersonic
scan on the testicles in order to gauge the seriousness of the condition, while at the same time
providing a warning to oneself. Although many people suffer from stomach pain but are able to
bear it, they would postpone the visit to the hospital for many years. Because post-ejaculation
symptoms tend to slowly subside after a couple days of rest, these people would take it lightly
and not worry about it, only to visit the hospital when the symptoms have become serious.
According to my knowledge, many brothers could already feel the worm-shaped lumps on their

testicles but are unwilling to go to the hospital, students especially are often afraid of letting their
parents finding out.

With the onset of symptoms, one should then become more aware, besides the human
weakness of “not shedding tears before seeing the coffin” there is the weakness of “forgetting

Page | 102
the pain after healed injury”. Many people after discovering symptoms would take it easy for a
while, after a dozen days they would think they are fine and then continue to masturbate, at the
return of the symptoms they would again start to reboot, constantly going back and forth in this
vicious cycle. What is the result? Bodily symptom grows ever numerous, a young person with a
body full of symptoms, feeling uncomfortable from place to place and turning uglier in the
process. Even when there are no problems, the expression one gives out to other people is a
decadent demeanor, a decadent look where the gaze lacks vitality. I remember that one brother
went to an interview and failed it, he blamed the cause on masturbation which I think make a
certain sense, if he was full of energy, went to the interview feeling confident and radiant, it’s
very possible that he would have landed the job. The interviewer, besides looking at your
abilities, the first impression is very very important. A person going to an interview lacking in
Spirit and confidence is prone to suffer the disappointment from failure. It is already an
undisputed reality that masturbation causes feelings of inferiority because that one lacks
confidence while under kidney deficiency, there is no way to put forth your best face. When
carrying around a decadent and strengthless look it is very easy to leave an unfavorable
impressor for the interviewer, the impression point will then suffer a big hit.

I have mentioned prostatitis and varicocele in my previous articles, both of these diseases will
induce infertility and the quality of the sperm. Therefore, one should pay attention to these
illnesses early on, or in the future, it will be too late for regrets. I remember that another brother
had a varicocele and lost the fertility function, all his expenses in diagnosing, medication and
surgeries cost more than 50000 yuan. If he had woken up early and became aware of the evil
fruits from masturbation, the consequences would not be as serious. These are all live cases,
live lessons, everybody should commit these lessons to memory in order to take preventive
measures and to prevent making the same mistake.

Below we will talk about the illnesses that are caused by sexual fantization.

Sexual fantization is able to cause illnesses, maybe this is the first time that many brothers have
heard about it. Actually, it has been recorded long ago in the TCM medical cases: when the
heart sways, essence leaves. Sexual fantization is, in reality, injuring the essence invisibly, it is
very damaging to the body. Some brothers would say that the expelled liquid during fantization
is from the prostate and is not semen.

Here I will correct many brothers in their misconception:

Prostatic fluid is actually an important constituent of the seminal fluid, taking up 15-30% of its
share. By losing prostatic fluid one is losing semen, only that you are not losing the semen in all
of its constituents, only part of the total. Although you have not ejaculated during fantization,
essence is still being lost. The damage to the body from the loss of prostatic fluid should
likewise not be underestimated. Some brothers have reported that by looking but not touching
and then looking in the mirror, they find out that their Spirit has immediately become sluggish.
Some brothers even report belly aches following watching but not masturbating. Other brothers
would report feeling unwell the day after they have lost prostatic fluid, legs becoming soft and
the body feeling out of strength, even the feeling of soreness or pain in the waist.

It is therefore important that everybody keep an eye on fantasies while undergoing rebooting,
one must keep it under control. Sexual fantazation is a big checkpoint in rebooting, many people

Page | 103
are unable to pass this checkpoint, although they have managed to not masturbate, they cannot
put a stop to fantization. Engaging in fantization is very unfavorable to the recovery process and
easily leads to breaking the reboot. As to how to put a stop to fantization, I have treated this
topic specifically in season 17, those brothers who are unable to put a stop to fantizations may
go and have a look, one must learn to cease fantizations. Once fantization has been conquered,
the number of your PMO free days will multiply in number, reaching the 100 days streak will be
an easy task. But if fantization cannot be kept under check, perhaps 1 month will be hard to
keep up with.

There is another situation of prostatic fluid leaking which is relatively serious, and that is leaking
towards the end of urination or a bowel movement. This can be resolved by persistently
practicing kidney strengthening exercises, the result of which will be quite good, after having
practiced for a while you will notice that leakage will no longer occur in conjunction with passing
stool or urinate.

Let’s talk about the drooping testicles issue.

The drooping testis is commonly seen among brothers, it easily arises when there has been
overindulgence. Normally, two kinds of problems will occur following overindulgence: the first is
excessive drooping of the testis, the other is the abnormal tightening of the testis, able to shrink
to the size of a quail egg, or even shrink into the abdomen. This is abnormal, a common
problem that most brothers run into is the drooping testis issue.

There’s a saying called “shrink like a child”, if a young boy is healthy then his testis will be very
tight while looking very full. This is actually an expression of abundant kidney qi, his boy body
has not been stained, nor does he engage in sexual fantasies, in this way the quality of his
testis is very good. Many brothers would say “heat expands, cold shrinks”, in reality, this change
on the testis is induced by outside stimuli and has little to do with kidney qi. Of course, if the
drooping is caused by severe depletion of kidney qi, then even cold stimuli from the outside will
not cause shrinkage of the testis.

Drooping of the testicles will normally occur for all adult men, the body has after all suffered
leakages, this is fine as long as the droopiness is not excessive. According to my own practices,
when lowering the head doing kidney strengthening exercises while consciously lifting the anus
and the testis, this will have a tightening effect on the testis and will have a meaningful healing
effect for excessive testis droopiness. Of course, one does not have to combine the above
exercises, lifting of the anus may be performed while standing or sitting. It so happens that I
have combined kidney strengthening exercises with the anus lifting exercise because by doing
so I felt an improvement in the results, the shrinkage will be more proper so to speak.
Nowadays, my testis would be relatively tight during the majority of the time in a given day, it no
longer droops the way it used to when I was sexually indulging, during those times, the testis
would be exposed outside of the underwear and now it is relatively tightly shrunken and full.

Afterword:

In the forums, there are many brothers reporting a slow recovery while rebooting. Some
brothers have been rebooting for 7 months and still, their health is bad, some have been
rebooting for 1 year with the same results. Today I’ve seen somebody who’s been rebooting for
2 years without much improvements in the health, this brother suffers from frequent nocturnal
emissions, 8 times per month, how can the body recover given so frequent emissions? TCM:

Page | 104
long-term emissions injuries all the Eight extra meridians. Nocturnal emissions are also very
damaging to the body, during reboot the number of emissions but are controlled, try to keep it
within 3 times/month, preferably once/month, this will be beneficial to the recovery process.

During reboot we must pass through 2 big levels:

1. The frequent emission level.


2. The sexual fantization level, fantization also greatly damages kidney essence.

In addition, pay attention to health cultivation, merely rebooting is not enough, rebooting is the
foundation, health cultivation is building the house. The contents of health cultivation are quite
broad, one needs to study it constantly. During reboot one must establish healthy living habits,
do not stay up late, sit for long periods at a time or gazing for long periods at a time, do not
overexert, sleep and eat early, exercise actively, all of these belongs to the categories of health
cultivation. By constantly studying health cultivation knowledge, the awareness for cultivating
the health will relatively increase, this then will be beneficial to the recovery process. Or else, to
only reboot but ignoring health cultivation, recovery is truly very difficult, this especially applies
to those heavily depleted brothers.

Season 22 [Soaring Eagle experience: be a owner of pure frequency]

[Sending out the waves of thought]

The 6th Patriarch Huineng (Translator’s note: Huineng is the 6th Patriarch of the Chinese Chan
school of Buddhism, the predecessor of Zen Buddhism) took up the mantle from the 5th
Patriarch Hongren, came to the Buddhist temple Faxing in Guangzhou in order to spread
Buddhist teachings. Master Yinzong, the abbot in charge at the Faxing temple was reading the
Buddhist texts at the time. The banners moved as the wind blew, and so he asked: “Is it the
wind or the banner that is moving?” Among the disciples, some answered it was the wind that is
moving, others said that the banner is moving. Huineng approached, closed his palms and said:
“It is not the wind nor the banner that moves, but the heart of the benevolent one”.

“All matter is a phenomenon of vibration, everything is illusion, in the universe there is only field
and matter, actually there is the only field, matter is but a place with a particularly intense field” -
Albert Einstein (Translator’s note: If the original English quotations from Einstein to the above
text is to be found somewhere, I have yet to find them. This quote does not seem to be among
the more popular ones circulating on the internet)

“All things and their produced effects is made of vibration, there is no existence of matter, all
material include vibration” - Max Planck

“This world is the hologram of the consciousness, the reality is an illusion, it exists in our mind
as a holographic mirage” - David Icke

“Objective reality does not really exist, despite that the universe looks concrete and solid, the
universe is actually an illusion, a gigantic and richly detailed hologram” - David Bohm

[Diamond Sutra]: all appearances is false.

(Translator’s note: Please allow for errors in the translation of the above quotes. If something
feels or sounds off to you, consider consulting the source for a more accurate communication)

A thought is a vibration of energy, the foundation of the universe is a vibrating wave-like


information field, while thoughts are the vibrating wave-like information. As long as there is
vibration, there will be the product of illusion. You giving rise to a thought is the same as
sending out a wave of information, every kind of thought will carry with it its own determined
vibration, the universe is a world of frequencies. As children we were all holders of pure
frequencies, our hearts were pure and beautiful, clean and clear. Before puberty, thoughts of
nefarious wantonness will rarely arise. Every day during those times, we were enjoying the
happiness of purity, only that we didn’t know to treasure it. That kind of great joy was fleeting,
once lost it is hard to regain it. Ever since becoming addicted to the evil habit of masturbation
we have changed, our spirit become vile and dirty, we are broadcasting thoughts of nefarious
wantonness daily. We have already come to be polluted, becoming unbearably dirty, as if going
from a clear stream to a stinking river. Not only are other people disgusted by us, we disgust
ourselves, is this our previous pure selves? As the spirit loses its degree of purity, what follows
is sorrow and decadence: once the level of purity has been restored, the great beautiful joy of
purity can be regained once again.

If we are to cast a stone into the water, outwards ripples will form on the surface of the water.
Big stones will form big ripples, small stones form small ripples. No matter the size of the ripples,
both can be simultaneously carried out on the surface of the water. Our thought ripple is also
like that, everyone is sending out their own waveform of information. If you are sending out
information waves of nefarious wantonness, then the decoded reality thereof will be distorted
and painful. Scientists say everything is vibrating. The 6th Patriarch, Master Huineng said, the
heart of the benevolent one moves! In reality, the fundament is that your thought is moving, as
long as it’s moving, the holographic mirage of the material world will manifest. Just like when
you are sleeping, as long as thoughts are moving, there will be dream scenes. The essence is
the thought that you broadcast, the condition is born of the mind. The frequency of your
broadcast thought determines the scenery of your life.

Master Empty Cloud once returned to his thatched hut from the monastery, halfway towards the
destination the day becomes dark. However, no thoughts arose from him, he was not aware of
the darkness, to him it was still day and the road is seen clearly. On the way he ran into two
monks, one of the monks held a lantern, the monk walked up to him and said: “Empty Master, it
is so dark, why do you not carry a light?” When the old monk heard this, the day immediately
become dark. For the person without a distracting thought, the day is light, once the
discriminating tendency arises, one returns to ignorance, darkness fills everything in an instant.

This case sheds light on a fact, that is: all ways arises from the mind!

The holy person: All dharma comes from the mind, all dharma is extinguished by the mind, all
follow from your mind, kindness and wickedness also follow from your mind, so does heaven
and hell follow from your mind.

[Changing your frequency]

“Thought or mentality is a magnet, like attracts like is the rule. Indeed it is so, a mentality will
attract the quality of nature that correlate to that of its own” - Charles Haanel

A string of intentions form a thought, a thought is magnetic and carries with it a certain
frequency. When you are thinking, those thoughts will be broadcasted out into space, they will
act like magnets and attract towards it all things of similar frequency. So the saying goes that
birds of the same feather flock together, the same applies to objects. Our thoughts will attract
contents of similar frequency, just like when we watch the TV where every channel has its own
frequency. When switched to a particular frequency, we will be able to see images on the image
screen. We select frequencies by changing channels, then we are able to see the images that
belong to that channel. If we want to see different TV images, then we will need to switch the
channel, tuning into a new frequency. Radios works in a similar fashion, whatever channel we
want to listen to can be achieved by tuning into the channel, different frequencies correspond to
different contents.

Everyone give this a thought; if a person is constantly broadcasting thoughts of nefarious


wantonness, what would the result be? The evil intentions will attract contents that correspond
to its frequency, the nature of such thoughts is often filled with pain and horror. The originator of
all evil practices starts with the thought that you send out! The human body is a broadcasting
station while at the same time functions as a receiver, different thoughts correspond to different
frequencies, you create worlds of life by the frequencies that you send out. The frequencies you
send out transcends cities, countries and this world, it will echo in the entire universe, and you

Page | 107
are using your thoughts to broadcast the frequencies! You are the fountainhead of the
broadcasted frequencies.

Your thoughts give rise to frequencies, and yet thoughts will attract towards it things of similar
frequencies, by the reactionary force it then returns to your body and through it becomes a part
of your life. If you want to change the circumstances of your life, you will only need to change
your thoughts and through it change the channel and the frequency, in this way your life
circumstance will greatly change, as the saying that conditions changes with the mind.

[Good and evil thoughts all carry frequencies]

Tibetan scriptures: “Jambudvipa mentions the arising of thought of the masses, not one is
without karma, not one is without sin”. [Treatise On the Response of the Tao]: “One harbors
lustful thoughts after seeing a beautiful woman”. As soon as you think the thought then it counts
as engaging in nefarious wantonness, in between forming a thought, high and low is clearly
distinguished.

Real reboot is mind reboot! One needs to cultivate the arising of thoughts, in rebooting one
needs to learn to control one’s thoughts, in other words, cultivate the mind! Although many
brothers are persistently rebooting, they are unable to conquer their sexual fantization,
fantization is often the prelude to relapse. If the cutting out of new thoughts cannot be achieved,
then breaking the reboot will easily occur. Actuality, being addicted in sexual fantization counts
as relapse, also that fantization is a form of invisible leakage when the heart sways the essence
leaves, addiction to sexual fantization will also induce the outbreak of symptoms. If one can
strictly achieve cutting out of thoughts once they arise, then the body will not be harmed. The
key is to find the proper timing for cutting out thoughts, speed is of the essence, try to cut out
the fantization within 1 second. The real adepts are basically able to cut out the new thoughts
immediately, more or less within 0.1 seconds. Many rebooting rookies are unable to cut out the
sexual fantasy within 1 second, oftentimes it is not until several minutes afterward that they
discover they have fantasizing, by this time it is already too late, the evil thoughts have
already taken hold just like when a little sparks turn into a huge forest blaze, control will be hard
at this point. Rookies lack watchfulness and awareness towards their inner states, therefore
they are defeated by their temptation daemons time and again. During rebooting we must learn
to watch our minds and cut out thoughts, we must keep a firm eye on our thoughts and know
when a thought has arisen, with an awe-striking awareness when the time comes, the thought is
no more. The saying that once a thought arises, cut it out immediately, once one is aware, the
thought is naught! Do not be led along by the thought, remember at all cost!

Dharma Master Dazhao: “As long as you give rise to a thought, this thought will act as a net in
the Ten Realms and capture your entire Realm within it. When giving rise to a kind thought, the
manifestation from your realm will be a kind Realm; give rise to an evil thought, the
manifestation of your realm will be an evil Realm. We are ordinary and foolish, we are not aware
that the thought born out our heart will have such an enormous impact on our Realm. But all the
Buddhas in the ten directions, great virtuous founders of past dynasties, all friends on the same
journey, those who are diligently forging ahead, those with a sensitive heart, all will immediately
sense it. Just like wireless radio waves that are immediately received, intercepting your signal.
As long as the mind moves, karma is born, there will be consequences. This consequence will
then change our future direction and path. Every thought, as long as it is born, its signal will
spread to the entire Realm. Even if you are alone in the room and feeling angry, very angry,
smashing the cup onto the ground, you think that nobody is watching you in the room, in reality,

Page | 108
all Buddhas in the ten directions as well as your own life reality, will manifest an angry and
complete Realm, neglecting nothing. Every thought possesses this universality in the Ten
Dharma Realms. In other words, the signal from our mind will at any time cover the entire world.
The degree of this coverage is very high.”

According to the holographic universe theory, the universe is an integrated whole where every
part of it shares a holographic association with one another. Within this wholeness of the
universe, between all its systems and subsystems, a holographic correspondence exists
between the systems and the universe. When it comes to latent information, subsystems
contain all the information of the systems, systems contain all the information of the universe.
When it comes to explicit information, the subsystem is a miniature version of the system, the
system is a miniature version of the universe.

The basic principle behind the holographic universe theory: looking at the latent and explicit
information as a whole, any part contains the information found in the whole. The holographic
universe theory has been applied in TCM relatively early, this is known thousands of years ago.
Many people have probably seen the TCM hologram, for instances the palms, ears, face and
different parts of the body all correspond to the internal organs, every tiny part contains all the
information found in the whole. The universe is fundamentally information! Thoughts are
information! All evil and kind thoughts have frequencies, kind thoughts correspond to high
frequency, evil thoughts correspond to low frequency, you are sending out thoughts every day
(namely vibrating the wave-like information).

Professor David Hawkins stated clearly after more than 20 years of research, the strength of the
human body will fluctuate along with the state of the mind. He has mapped the human
consciousness in the range between 1-1000 (Translator’s note: the unit of the frequency was
not mentioned), any state that induces a frequency below 200 will drain the body, anything
between 200-1000 will cause the body to strengthen. Physicists have already proven that all
matter in this world is made up of swirling particles. All these particles have a different rate of
vibration, the vibration of the particles is what causes the world to express itself as it is. Our
bodies behave in the same way, scientists have already measured that the vibrational rate of
the body differs under different mental states, this result was an eye-opener for everybody.
Kindness, honesty, compassion, love, these positive qualities allow the rise of bodily vibrational
rates, the bodily health may then be improved. The highest frequency that professor Hawkins
has encountered is 700, it occurred when he was studying the nun Teresa during 1997 when
she has received the Nobel peace prize. (Translator’s note: There may be an error in the dating
as Mother Teresa received her Nobel Prize in 1979, she died in the year 1997). The moment
that Teresa entered the room, everybody’s heart was filled with joy, her appearance made it
almost impossible for people to harbor distracting thoughts or hatred. 1000 is named the as the
state under total enlightenment, this it the frequency of absolute power!

Professor David Hawkins said: “Many people become sick due to the lack of love, there is only
pain and dismay, one is prone to become sick when the rate of vibration is below 200.” The
doctor would come in contact with a large number of patients every day. He found out later that
as long as a person is sick, that person always carries lots of negative thoughts. If a person’s
vibrational rate is above 200 then that person will not become sick easily, his patients would
often have a vibrational rate below 200, what kind of thoughts did they send out? Thoughts such
as sexual fantization, blaming, anger, inflicting injury upon others etc, in the process of sending

Page | 109
out these negative thoughts, much energy is lost, therefore, when the rate of vibration goes
below 200, these people are prone to catch different illnesses.

[Evil thoughts will drag down your rate of vibration]

Evil thoughts will induce the lowest of frequencies, the quality of these thoughts is one of a
twisted nature, of harm. When you are thinking about degenerative thoughts, when you are
addicted to sexual fantization, the reality is that you are weakening yourself. This is not limited
to sexual fantization, also included are evil thoughts such as greed and injuring others in order
to get ahead, these will all pull your frequency lower. On the other hand, gentleness, optimism,
forgiveness, gratefulness, love, respectfulness, sereneness, calmness and joy etc, all of these
will raise your vibration. The higher the rate of frequency, the easier it is to feel the great joy of
pureness, the lower the vibration, then one is surrounded by pain. The vibration of kind thoughts
is higher than evil thoughts, by lifting more kind thoughts, our bodily energy vibration will
increase accordingly.

When a person’s vibration is relatively high, he already possesses various positive qualities, his
thoughts are pure, his character is noble and actions selfless, these are all reflected in his every
word and action. He will like to come into contact with contents that share a similar vibration,
choosing to associate with people with similar frequencies. Whenever we create a thought, a
certain frequency is born, noble thoughts produce higher frequencies, degenerative thoughts
produce lower frequencies. Many sexual fantasizers, their rate of vibration is very low because
they are constantly producing evil thoughts and have done many things of nefarious
wantonness. This, in reality, is sabotaging and injuring the self. Evil thoughts will drag a
person’s frequency lower, the lower the frequency then the more painful it becomes, every form
of psychological and bodily symptom will then follow from it and manifest itself.

[The Creator’s secret: frequency determines the physical form]

“If you want to know the secret of the universe, please consider the vibration and resonance of
energy.” - Nikola Tesla

Every physical substance in our world is a manifestation of vibration


If the vibration is changed then the structure of the physical substance also changes

Thoughts, feelings, moods all have a determined rate of vibration


We possess these frequencies at all times and so come into resonance with our surroundings

The famous experience of vibrational frequency on sand pattern has shown the relationship
between frequency and physical substance. Different frequencies correspond to different forms
of shapes. Thoughts are a form of vibrating wave-like information, thinking a thought gives rise
to a certain frequency, this frequency will directly influence a person’s appearance and
temperament, the saying that looks is grown by the heart. Many people who masturbate have
become ugly, this is widely reflected in the narratives of brothers. In the beginning, the process
of ugliness is not very apparent, with the increased time one spends in masturbation and with
the deepening of injury upon the essences, many previously handsome people have turned
beyond recognition, showing abnormal ugliness and wretchedness, even developing towards
the direction of monstrostrous deformity. Why is it like this? It is actually very easy to understand
from the perspective of frequencies; because he is sending out evil thoughts of nefarious
wantonness, and the frequency of nefarious wantonness corresponds to the appearance and

Page | 110
ugliness and wretchedness. Therefore, people addicted to nefarious wantonness will inevitably
turn wretched and ugly, this is a certainty.

After rebooting, the soul receives purification, the frequency will then rise, during which time, the
appearance and temperance will again develop towards the positive direction. The thoughts that
a person produces will affect his physical appearance and temperance because thoughts
produce frequency, frequencies will affect the physical form, it is this mysterious. Many people
have previously heard the saying that looks is grown from the heart, but they do not understand
the underlying principles of physics. After having read this paragraph of description,
I believe that more people will gain a deeper understanding and awareness. The thought waves
that you are producing is affecting your physical appearance at this very moment, this is subtle.
After a few years of nefarious wantonness, the appearance and temperament will decline,
because your vibrational frequency has decreased. Evil thoughts will induce low frequency while
low frequency corresponds to ugliness and wretchedness.
[Methods for raising the rates of vibration]

1. Kind deeds and the accumulation of virtue, do more to help people, in this way your
vibrational frequency may be vastly increased.
2. Emit more thoughts of repentance, correct and change to the better, straighten the self
in order to change the person.
3. Read more vibrational uplifting books, study more traditional culture.
4. Emit more intention of respectfulness, read more teachings on great virtue.
5. Maintain a grateful heart, practice more filial piety.
6. Learn to not complain, practice tolerance, learn to forgive others.
7. Keep calmness, inner calmness is a form of high vibration.
8. Attempt to find the Truth of life and the universe, find the belief that belongs to the self.
9. Do not look at nudity, especially in border pictures and news.
10. Maintain modesty, modesty allows increasing the rate of vibration.
11. Learn to meditate, actively exercise, learn the way of health cultivation.
12. Be among children, be as pure as children without a trace of evil.
13. Reboot, cut out smoking, alcohol, internet addiction and various bad habits.
14. Do not blame, don’t be jealous, encourage more, praise more.
15. Study Buddhist Dharma, read Buddhist sutras, chant the name of the Buddha, one’s
vibrational frequency may be vastly increased through this way.
16. Learn to cultivate the heart, control the thoughts, this is the most basic method of raising
the vibrational frequency.

Afterword:

We should all return purity to our soul and become a keeper of pure frequencies, say no to the
nefarious wantonness and pollution from these troubled times. The modern society is flooded
with nefarious wantonness, also the evil notion of harmlessness theories is rampant, keeping a
frequency of pureness is extremely difficult. Everyone has their own rate of vibration just like
they have their own fingerprints. Yet the vibrational frequency is able to be raised when you
have cut off the addiction of nefarious wantonness and try your best to practice kindness, in this
way your vibrational frequency will increase by leaps and bounds. The higher the rate of
vibration the easier it is to experience the vast joy of pureness. In contrast, a low rate of
vibration will sink one into boundness fear and pain.

Season 23 [Soaring Eagle experience: the issue of waist pain,
puffiness, emancipation and the importance of keeping vigilance]

Foreword:

Recently, many brothers have asked about the greying issue. To recover from greying will
require approximately 1 year of time. Those that often browse in my case related posts should
have seen a particular case; one brother after having rebooted for 200 days had all of his hair
turning black. I, on the other hand, took about 1 year of time, nowadays I have very few grey
hairs, around 1-2 strands, this is entirely within the normal range. Only persistence is needed in
order to recover from greying, in addition, one must: 1) strictly control the number of nocturnal
emission 2) make all efforts to cease sexual fantization 3) emphasize the way of health
cultivation. When enough effort has been made in all 3 areas, greying will naturally recover.
Many people are rebooting but are unable to control their nightly emissions, sexual fantizations
and do not understand health cultivation while at the same time often relapsing, to recover from
greying under these conditions will be quite difficult.

Some brothers, especially those who are yet to experience serious symptoms thinks that it is
incredible for a brother to experience a dozen of symptoms. To these brothers, I could only
comment on the shallow level of experience. Up until today I have seen several thousand cases
and have personally communicated with a thousand brothers. The majority of these people
have very many bodily symptoms, they have only picked out the most apparent symptoms and
inquired me about them. One will understand this by going through lots of cases, there are
many brothers with a dozen and even several dozens of different bodily discomforts. Some
brothers are exquisite and sensitive and are able to describe all the discomfort symptoms, while
some brothers come to late realizations and have limited abilities in expressing themselves,
thus making them unable to give a description of all the uncomfortable symptoms. Those
brothers that are yet to sustain serious injury or have come to late realizations will think that all
of this is unbelievable. This is in fact very easy to understand, when you have been injured to a
certain degree then you will naturally understand the truth that I speak, people that lack the
experiences will have no ways in understanding the experiences involved. If you have never
tasted salt, you would never know about its specific flavor, all the descriptions that others relay
to you mean nothing.

In addition, I would like to stress a point, I did not successfully reboot on my first try. I made my
first attempt while in middle school, I was totally oblivious at the time, I did not have the
awareness to study rebooting material nor did I have a guide. At the time I only relied on blindly
and forceful rebooting and knew nothing about the way of professional rebooting, the result was
repeated defeats. I have failed countless times and have struggled in the vicious circle in many
years, my entire body became ridden with symptoms. If I had succeeded in my first attempt then
I would not have had so many symptoms later on. It’s a pity that it took me well over a decade to
realize the importance of studying reboot articles, fortunately, it is still not too late. After a couple
years of bodily recovery I have been restored to normal, of course, it is still incomparable to
when I was a teen because now I’m already 30 years old.

Let me elaborate further on my motivations when writing about my experiences I seek not fame
nor any gains, it is entirely for the welfare of the public. I do not seek any rewards and I don’t
need anybody to worship me, some brothers have called me Grandmaster but I have never paid
attention to it. I sit on the same level with every brother, I’m just like the person pointing

Page | 112
directions which puts me on the same level as the person asking for directions, one does not
tower above the other, I’m but an ordinary waypoint. If you ask me how to reboot I can point you
towards the right direction. I only wish to help everyone.

We enter into the main topic below.

This season is about the issue of waist pain, puffiness, emancipation and the importance of
maintaining vigilance, I will go through these topics in detail, as in the below:

TCM: waist is the residence of the kidney.

The issue of waist pain is common among brothers. I believe that the majority of brothers have
had the experience of sore and aching waist. One bodily expression following masturbation is:
soreness and softness of the waist and knees, in more serious cases pain is involved. Of course,
many factors contribute towards waist pains. Normally, masturbation induced waist ache will
slowly alleviate itself following a period of rebooting and health cultivation. If your waist ache is
persistently bothering you, I would recommend you to go check it out in order to rule out any
organically related illnesses, such as issues with the lumbar disc or kidney stones. In everyday
life, many people suffer from the issue of protruding lumbar disc, the seed to the problem could
be sowed when one, for instance, is not careful with the body posture when carrying heavy
objects.

There is another expression for post masturbation waist ache and that is the inability to
straighten the waist after having bent it for long periods of time, the feeling is extreme soreness.
Previously when I used to wash clothes after masturbating, upon finishing washing my waist
would be very sore, it would require a while of rest until it is recovered. Therefore, masturbation
will cause the waist to become very soft and weak. Under normal cases, bending the waist will
not cause soreness issues, but because you have the evil habit of masturbation, soreness will
easily appear after bending the waist for a long time. This kind of issue, where soreness or pain
follows the bending of the waist has been reported by many brothers, I have had such
experiences myself. In addition, after masturbation one becomes very soft, one should take
extra care when exercising under such conditions. Because while partaking in a heavy exercise
under this soft bodily state one is prone to get injured, something that I have deeply experienced;
previously when I went to play basketball after masturbation I have broken my bones under 3
occasions, sprained my ankles countless times. Furthermore, those injuries happened under
strange circumstances and were all self-inflicted.
With regards to waist pains, this is very easy to solve given that one is without organic illnesses,
normally. After a period of rebooting while cultivating the health, waist pains will heal by itself
without the use of medicines. If soreness and pain in the waist persist, it is recommended to
check it out. If organic issues are absent then one may use Chinese herbal medicine for
treatment, if organic issues are present then one should undergo active treatment while
persisting in rebooting and cultivating the health, in this way the recovery will be fairly rapid. For
men, the waist is really too important, one should properly take care of the waist.

Let’s talk about the issue of puffiness and emancipation.

Following masturbation the condition of being out of tune will appear, this is reflected in the body
weight, either in puffiness or being emancipated. Of course, although that some people
masturbate, they still practice good exercise and dietary habits, they might not run into the
mentioned problems. Although I have frequently masturbated before, I loved to exercise and

Page | 113
would keep relatively rhythmic rest and eating schedules and so the weight imbalance issue did
not show up.

In TCM, puffiness is due to 2 reasons: spleen deficiency with moist obstruction and spleen plus
kidney yang deficiency.

If a person loves to exercise, he will not become puffy, although fat, he still looks very strong
and not the kind of loose muscles type of puffiness look. Why is it that people who love to
exercise will not normally encounter puffiness? Because according to TCM: spleen governs the
4 limbs. [Suwen]: “Spleen governs the muscles of the body” If the spleen qi is moving healthily,
then the muscles will be plump and vigorous. If the spleen is sick, then the muscles shrink and
become useless. A person that loves to exercise may achieve spleen strengthening effect, the
possibility of running into puffiness will be relatively low. The spleen qi strengthens the
movement, muscles will then become elastic and vigorous. Many people think that puffiness is
due to fat, this is actually not correct, puffiness indicates that both fat and muscles have become
soft and sagging, the feeling is one of being without elasticity and very loose.

How to treat puffiness? Taking Chinese traditional herbals is one way, this will adjust your
internal organs. The more important is still to establish healthy exercise and dietary habits, this
is very important! You can forego the herbs, if you only manage to make the other two points,
weight can still be shed, you can even become a fit and muscular guy. I have previously been a
personal trainer and have accumulated vast experiences in losing fat, in addition to going
through the fat shedding process myself. If you have some general knowledge with regards to
working out, then you’ll know for sure the saying: 30% comes from training, 70% comes from
eating. Merely training is not enough if one wants to gain muscles, the key is to eat the right
amount of food, muscle gain will be relatively quick in this way. Fat loss works in the same way,
many people would have an intense workout but when they return home they’re unable to
control their appetites and end up eating too much, by doing this they have regained all the
energy that they have lost through training. In addition, the spleen governs the 4 limbs, normally
after working out, the appetite would increase and enables one to eat a lot, the result being that
no matter how hard one works out one is unable to shed weight. In reality, if one is able to
strictly control the food input, even without training intensely, the weight would still decrease.

For brothers experiencing puffiness, my advice is:

1. Actively exercise, emphasize aerobic exercises, one may also combine it with strength
exercises.
2. Strictly control the food intake, highly energetic food, midnight meals and snacks should
all be restricted.

If the above points can be met, your weight will for sure decrease. If after a period of time your
weight is still unchanged, then you should reflect on which of the above points that you need to
improve upon.

In addition, strength exercises will help you to shape the muscles. Many brothers would become
addicted to strength exercises as they would like to become stronger, more manly, this is a very
common form of thinking. A strong body indeed gives one the feeling of assurance and makes
one feel more confident, normally, a stronger man also have a stronger sexual function. But
please remember a saying: blessing and misfortune exist side by side. TCM advocates that
desire should not be too strong. When many people have trained themselves stronger, they

Page | 114
become even more prone to fool around, the result is that they become indulgent at a young
age. After the age of 40, it is time to pay the bill, the headache will be great when the time
arrives. Being strong is not the same as being healthy and longevity, many strong people have
many issues, even not being able to make past the age of 50. On the other hand, many people
practice health cultivation, their strength indicators are very low but they still live upwards 80
and beyond.

I have another piece of advice for those brothers suffering from puffiness; if you want to lose fat
you will have to increase understanding, this is like rebooting, professional is the key. With
professional knowledge, one finds the door easier and succeed easier. No matter in what
occupation and on what matters, it is particularly important to study. Ignorance stems from not
studying, understanding comes from studying, in addition, combine it with one’s own practices
and constantly gaining new awareness, success is then not far away. The saying that difficulty
does not perplex the Master, the perplexed will experience difficulty, one must study more.
Many things will become simple once you have grasped the adequate amount of professional
knowledge on fat loss. If your understanding is not deep enough, you will hesitate and be at loss
in many choices.

Another type of brother will encounter the emancipation issue.

Emancipation shares a certain relationship with the physique, of course, it is also intricately
related to the disorderly function of the internal organs caused by masturbation. Emancipated
people have poor appetites, are unable to eat much and have poor digestion. No matter how
much they eat they will not become fat, this is the first type. There is another type, it’s when one
is able to eat a lot but are unable to become fat. This type of person may suffer from poor
absorption or have a very high basal metabolism. Some other brothers are suffering from
chronic diarrhea, weight loss is made even easier with this condition.

I advise the emancipated people to go seek a traditional Chinese doctor followed by active
exercises, emphasize health cultivation and slowly adjusting yourself.

Lastly, let’s talk about the importance of keeping vigilance.

Quite a few brothers have been on a rebooting streak for over 100 days and then still relapsed,
what is the reason? When many brothers have gone through a period of rebooting it is easy to
let down the guard. Thinking that the problem is no more and that one has succeeded, one
starts to relax; First, the relaxation is with regards to studying rebooting articles. Second, it is the
relaxation of vigilance. As soon as one relaxes the vigilance, relapses come easily. Rebooting is
like walking on a steel wire, one needs to keep alert every day because if you are not careful
you will fall down, if you are not careful you will relapse, this happens almost supernaturally.

Ever since I started to reboot until the present day I have still maintained my vigilance, just like
the vigilance of a woodpecker, when a person approaches it flies away, the woodpecker will not
allow anybody to come close to it. Rebooting works in the same manner, when one enters a
stable period after some time of rebooting it does not mean that relapses will not occur again, if
you relax your guard you will still relapse. Therefore, we should allow ourselves to maintain our
state of alertness and not wander far from rebooting articles, we should look more into cases
from sufferers. This process is likened to brushing the teeth every day, it does not have to take
a long time but by looking at rebooting material daily, this is absolutely beneficial to the

Page | 115
maintenance of your vigilant state. This is an indispensable awareness towards a successful
reboot.

Naturally, some people have an extremely high level of awareness, they don’t look at rebooting
articles nor in any cases. Every day they would go through their suffering once in their heads,
this will also allow them to keep vigilance. There is another type of person who is able to
maintain vigilance and that is the person with a religious belief, rebooting is like a form of a
commandment. If the person strictly adheres to the commandment then he will not relapse,
because he knows that relapse is worse than death, this is his consciousness.

Afterword:

Some brothers would ask me, why is it that everybody around me is masturbating but their
health is still good, why is it that only my body is ridden with symptoms. Quite a few brothers
have asked me this question and it is not difficult to answer it. The constitution is different for
different people, some people are naturally endowed with a good constitution, a thick health
foundation, plus that they love to exercise, have fixed resting and eating habits and absent of
any other negative hobbies, this kind of people can afford of few years of depletion, the fruit
from the evil karma will appear relatively late. On the other hand some people have a naturally
weak constitution, their physique is inadequate and they don’t like to exercise, they like to sit for
long periods of time and have internet or smoking addiction, often stays up during the night in
combination with frequent masturbation, they will encounter symptoms relatively early and these
symptoms will be more serious.

Another point, although some people seems to look fine from the outside, in reality, they also
have lots of symptoms, only that you cannot see them from the outside. There is a word called
“hidden disease” (Translator’s note: hidden disease are those disease that are hard to detect
and to cure). In everyday life many people carry with them hidden disease, these are matters of
privacy, he will not tell you, you would think that he is healthy but that is not the case. Just like
myself as an example, at a time I had prostatitis but other people didn’t know about it, I haven’t
told my friends either. On the sports court, I was vigorous like the tiger and other people thought
I was very healthy, that was not the case. Only I knew that I suffered from my discomforts owing
to my evil habit of masturbation, only that these symptoms were not that serious and were
bearable. After a while of rebooting, all of these symptoms would find relief which is why at the
time they were not emphasized that much. In addition, I had varicocele for over a decade
without knowing about it because it was not severe, I did not experience distinct discomforts but
I had the disease, only upon doing an ultrasound did I knew that I had varicocele. I have already
written an article regarding this disease, after reading that article, many brothers went to the
hospital for a diagnosis. It turned out that quite a few brothers were diagnosed with varicocele,
only that they were previously oblivious to it.

Actually, due to the evil habit of masturbation, more often than not there will be symptoms. No
matter how good your constitution is and without any unhealthy hobbies, but as you age, many
latent issues will expose themselves, the debt will sooner or later be paid. It is not necessarily
bad that the body deteriorates early because once the body has deteriorated while you are
young and you come to the realization to reboot thoroughly, the bodily ability to recover is still
strong. What’s worse is when body deteriorates when one has passed 40, by then the bodily
recovery function is not as it used to be, the rate of recovery will be very slow.

Page | 116
Let’s talk about the sweating issue when doing kidney strengthening exercises during the
summer. It is now the scorching summer, the tiniest of movements results in a drench of sweat,
even when we stay stationary the sweat will pour down like the rain. These days I’m still
persisting in practicing the kidney strengthening exercises, I have not stopped for a single day.
The way I practice is by going bare to the waist, prepare a towel, after doing and set of
movements and having sweated I would immediately wipe myself dry, then repeat the
movement. In this fashion, the issue of sweating can be avoided, or else if I practice kidney
strengthening exercises following a shower my clothes would get soaked again which is very
uncomfortable and makes it hard to sleep. Furthermore, during the summer, try to limit the
exposure towards AC. Exposure towards AC and taking cold beverages both damage the yang
qi and discourages bodily recovery, remember.

Lately, some brother reflected the “days record” issue with me. I’m not personally against in
keeping track of the days, but I feel like keeping track of the days is like punching an attendance
card at work, you cannot just punch the card but not work. This corresponds to rebooting, you
have kept the day’s record, but what is your goal? The goal of keeping days is to study
rebooting articles and sufferers’ cases daily in order to alert oneself. If the goal is only focused
on keeping track of the days then your awareness and determination will not have increased,
you will still remain on the brute force rebooting stage.

A mistake that newbies tend to make: only keeping track of the days and not studying, they see
that other people have opened a thread for tracking the days and so they do the same, yet they
do not emphasize studying rebooting articles. Back when I first started to reboot, I also liked to
keep a day count, at the time I kept my record on a notebook and the maximum number of
endurable days was 28 days. Afterward, when I reached a thorough understanding, the thought
of keeping track of the days did not even occur to me and it did not feel like enduring, until today
I have not relapsed, because I have reached a thorough understanding, in addition, I maintain a
daily awareness vigilance. I don’t remember how many days I have been rebooting, only from
which month I started to reboot from, my advice is: don’t pay too much attention to the number
of days, put the emphasize on studying and to increase the rebooting understanding and
awareness, this is the true path towards rebooting.

Season 24 [Soaring Eagle experience: aggravated hair loss following
rebooting, complementary info on emancipation, the issue of lower
brain power]

Foreword:

Some brothers may wonder, how come that Soaring Eagle has experienced every symptom? It
does not seem possible, out of this question doubt is born. Those who often look into my
experience posts will know that I have not said that I have had experienced every symptom out
there. For instance, I have mentioned in my posts that I had drooping testis, but not shrunken
testis, I have not suffered from puffiness either. When writing my articles I carry a truth-seeking
attitude, things are either experienced or not experienced, I would not make it up. Although I
have not experienced some symptoms, I have thoroughly researched and enquired into them.
For example, the doctor doesn’t need to have experienced every ailment, the importance is to
have deep knowledge and understanding in the ailments, that is the key.

Nobody how weak a person is, it is not possible for the person to have experienced every
symptom. Even though two people are both suffering from kidney yang deficiency, the focus of
the symptoms is still different. I have had a history of masturbation for over a decade, it could be
said I have experienced the vast majority of the symptoms. In addition, I have researched into
the habit of masturbation for a couple years and have encountered basically every type of
symptom, in addition to having assembled a vast archive of cases, chatted with over a thousand
brothers and gained a deep understanding in this area. The study of TCM theories did not stop
either, all of the mentioned provided me with the foundations of the articles that I wrote.

Because that I have made a huge number of posts, it is impossible to answer many questions
immediately, I hope that everybody can understand this.

A capable group of brothers are on the rise in the rebooting forums, this group of brothers are
constantly studying and have increased their understanding a lot, therefore, everybody may also
refer to them for any questions. There is a need for talents everywhere, the same goes for the
rebooting forums, there is a need for talented Q&A people, talented promoters, administrators,
each person has his duties to improve the forums and help more people. As to the issue of
being scolded at while trying to promote, this has happened on different occasions; previously I
did some promotional work although it was not internet-based but based on the QQ-group,
where I promoted rebooting and health cultivation among the dozen of anxiety patient groups.

When doing promotional work, first, it is important to let things go their own course when helping
people, do not force things. Second, pay attention to the promotional strategy, choose the
optimal entry point; third, one must be control of the emotions, because in this line of work it is
very easy to run into stubborn people, just like when the scholar meets the soldier, there is no
reasoning, when meeting this kind of people, making a concise point is enough, there is no
need for elaborate explanations, once the message is heard, the seed has been sown. He might
not understand it today but perhaps he will suddenly understand one day and come to regret his
old stubborn ways, not having paid heed to your bitter truth. Helping people, in reality, is helping
the previous you, the old you is perhaps reminiscent of the present them; not recognizing the
truth until it is placed right in front of them, stubbornly going their own ways, controlled by the
indulgence mentality, harboring misconceptions towards rebooting along with the attitude of
rejection and conflict. Now that you have understood after having clearly seen the truth and

Page | 118
wanting to help others, this is a very thought. But one must pay attention to the promotional
strategy and method, in this regard the forum owner Balinhou has extensive experience,
everyone may seek him out, join a promotional team and learn from the successful promotional
models.

Doing promotional work towards rebooting is extremely meaningful, sometimes, a single


sentence from you may change the entire life of a person, due to that single sentence, he
becomes enlightened. In the future, I’m sure to return to do more promotion for rebooting, but as
of now, my main mission is to write more experience articles.

Heading into the main topic below.

In this season we will take a closer look at aggravated hair loss following rebooting,
complementary info on emancipation and the issue of lower brain power. Details can be found
below:

Lately, many brothers have reported aggravated hair loss following rebooting. When this
happens one easily thinks about throwing in the towel, not wanting to reboot anymore; thinking
that hair loss did not occur before rebooting but became serious following rebooting, what’s
going on? I have mentioned this in the previous articles, about relapsing due to doubt, if there
are unsolved problems, relapses become easy. When hair loss becomes aggravated during
rebooting it easily causes one to experience panic, anxiety and the loss of hope, these negative
emotions in turn easily induces emotional-based relapse. When one wants to vent negative
emotions via masturbation, the result is to sink back into the vicious cycle.

Actually, I’m well aware of the thinking process of those brothers who contemplates giving up
rebooting due to aggravated hair loss, they are thinking that if they start to masturbate again,
the hair loss might cease. This kind of thinking is a bit absurd but it does occur.

Normally, some symptoms will easy appear after one has started to reboot. Many people have
not experienced any symptoms before rebooting but as soon as they start to reboot, symptoms
appear. When seeing the emergence of symptoms, many rookies start to panic and thinks that
abstaining is harmful, they then immediately sink back into the trap of masturbation. The
emergence of symptoms following rebooting is actually a withdrawal reaction, it is very
commonly seen. Persist in rebooting and cultivating the health and the bodily symptoms will
slowly improve and even disappear. The increased severity of hair loss following rebooting can
also be seen as a withdrawal symptom, of course, some people say it is a reaction to shedding
illnesses, there is also some basis in this; due to the build-up of vital qi after rebooting, latent
illnesses will naturally make themselves known.

In addition, I discovered that a great number of brothers report aggravated hair loss during the
summer season, why during the summer? Before the arrival of the sizzling summer, every day I
would lose within 5 strands of hair, but now I would lose several dozens daily, some days over
30 strands of hair. In fact, this is seasonal hair loss at work, for a normal person, hair loss would
also increase during the summer. I have mentioned in the previous article, there are many
factors leading to hair loss, one must get to know each one of them or else it is easy to get into
a state of panic. The thought of throwing in the towel is made easier under the state of panic.
During the summer there is more sweating, the scalp will easily itch, when the scalp itches, hair
loss will increase. Recently when washing the hair I would apply hair shampoo twice, the scalp

Page | 119
would still itch, and so I applied a few drops of herbal distillate in clean water and the scalp
would barely itch after that when the scald no longer itches, the amount of hair loss decreases.

Hair loss during the summer is due to the following reasons:

1. The loss of hair during the summer is due to exposure of the head towards the strong
solar rays which breaks the keratin within the hair, causing the falling off of the hair.
2. During the summer the scalp sweats easily, produces oil, plus it’s dustier, hair would
easily become affected.
3. Due to walking in and out of AC exposure, this causes poor blood circulation, the hair
would fall off more easily.
4. The summer heat induces secretion imbalances in the body, inducing hair loss.
5. Too much cold beverages. Suppose that one consumes more ice sticks, ice cream, and
cold beverages, the hair would fall off more easily.
6. A decrease in the nutritional input. Protein is an essential nutrient for the hair. But due to
the heat of the summer, people like to eat a lighter diet, meat intake will be relatively less.
Suppose that the protein intake is inadequate, hair will fall off easier.
7. Inflammatory stimulation. During the summer there is a higher chance for folliculitis,
favus of the scalp, pimple or carbuncle. These causes instability in the hair follicles and
induces hair loss more easily.
8. It is scorching during the summer, there is a large amount of water evaporation. If the
water is not quickly replenished it will lead to a decrease in the sebaceous glands
secretions. And from there induces the drying up and falling off of hair. When the hair
loses its moist it becomes brittle, after some time it will become crisp and breaks easily
and prone to falling off.
9. Affected by the summer weather; many people suffer from poorer sleep quality, become
more irritable, those are also important reasons for losing hair.

Summer is a very special season, the common saying goes: although no illnesses, one is 30%
weakened during the summer. Because there is a high amount of sweating during the summer,
and so according to TCM: He who sweats, also losses essence. When one sweats too much
the person is weakened. Lately a brother reported the good progress he was making after a few
months of rebooting, but lately, some symptoms have re-emerged with even the occurrence of
frequent nightly emissions. This is, in fact, an expression of the repeating period, many brothers
confuse withdrawal symptoms with the period for repeated symptoms, I will again emphasize it
here. Withdrawal symptoms normally occur within the first month of rebooting, repeating period
may occur at any time during the reboot. Because some people have not properly cultivated the
health, following a half year of rebooting they again experience a repeat of the symptoms, some
people may encounter repeated symptoms after a year due to staying up, fatigue or frequent
nocturnal emissions. The reason to why repeated symptoms tend to occur during the summer is
because one sweats profusely during the summer, even without illnesses one becomes partially
weakened, add to the AC exposure, cold beverages or staying up, long sitting and long staring,
under these circumstances, repeated symptoms will easily occur. If you go about your day
engaging exercises that have a damaging effect on the yang qi, it would be a surprise if you
didn’t catch any symptoms. Therefore, I very much emphasize health cultivation. The mistake
many people make is that they only reboot but do not cultivate the health, they do not know how
to do it and have a very low level of health cultivation awareness; going to the AC room right
after a shower because it feels good but it also sows the seed for future illnesses, some people
love to take cold beverages and they do so daily, this has a very negative impact on the
recovery of the body, once you are aware of these things, you will not repeat the mistakes,

Page | 120
because you know that by engaging in those activities you will severely damage your yang qi,
when the yang qi has been damaged, repeated symptoms will show up. (Translator’s note: Just
to clarify, repeated symptoms are a repeat of previous symptoms that we’ve had during the time
when we were still masturbating)

Some brothers would ask if it’s OK to use AC during the summer. My recommendation is that
one can use the AC but refrain from AC exposure right away taking a shower or to set a
temperature that is too low, otherwise the cold air will enter the body through the pores. I
remember a couple days ago when I went into an air-conditioned room to fetch something, the
temperature was set to very low and I was sweating slightly at the time and so the pores were
all open, suddenly I was exposed to the cold air and later that day I suffered from diarrhea. AC
is a great invention but it is a double-edged sword and does not benefit health cultivation.
Everybody should be careful when being exposed to AC in order to avoid sowing the seed for
future illnesses.

For those brothers who are suffering from aggravated hair loss during the rebooting period,
make sure to persist in your efforts, do not panic, remember this sentence: It is not wrong to
reboot. When you panic it is only that you have not figured out what is going on at the time, it is
not that rebooting is hurting your hair.

Let’s talk about the emancipation issue below.

In the previous season, we talked about the issue of puffiness, we did not go through the
emancipation issue thoroughly enough, in this season we will examine it closer.
For the emancipated brothers, if you want to become strong, I would advise doing some
moderate strength exercises, doing strength exercises will increase your appetite. If you have
no problems with digestion then you will quickly become stronger. It would be preferable if you
had somebody to coach you, in this way your training will be more systematic and professional
as opposed to blindly training by yourself. If you have your eyes set on only push ups and sit
ups then it will be difficult to become strong quickly. Being professional is also important in
strength exercises, if you train in a professional manner then you will become strong very
rapidly and advance very quickly. Therefore, it would be best if somebody in your surrounding is
able to show you the way.

When I graduated from college I was 186 cm tall and weighed 62 kg. After I have started to
work out my weight once surged to 100kg. The impression I gave to people was being both fat
and strong. After that I started to shed fat and did lots of high repetition exercises, the contours
of the body then appeared. Nowadays I maintain a weight of about 80 kg without focusing
especially much on protein heavy food, now I keep a normal and light diet.

There is a saying in the bodybuilding sphere: fear eating, not training. As long as we have
gotten the hang of training then there won’t be any big issues, the importance is in the diet. In
order to become strong, energy intake must be adequate. In the beginning, we gain both fat and
muscles, once we start to shed fat after having reached a certain weight then the shapes will
start to appear.

Page | 121
Everyone may take a look at the workout terminology:

Chest: sitting bench press, 3 sets


Back: rope from neck pulldown, 3 sets
Shoulders: sit on the combination machine and do pulling and lifting, 3 sets
Triceps: rope pulldown from standing position, 3 sets
Biceps: biceps curl lift on a combination machine, 3 sets
Thighs: leg lifts, 3 sets
Biceps femoris: prone leg curl lift, 3 sets
Calves: heel lift while sitting on the combination machine, 3 sets
Abs: Sit-ups, 2 sets
Heel lift with dumbbells, 2 sets

For the person who has never worked out before this terminology may seem foreign, this is why
I have mentioned it is better to have somebody show you the way. The person may
demonstrate the important aspects of the movements and let you in on lots of professional
knowledge. In this way you will quickly learn the ropes, after that, you will progress very quickly,
every month there will be changes, your strength will increase by a lot. Of course, don’t expect
prostatitis to heal just because you have become stronger. Reality has proven that no matter
how strong the body is one can still suffer from prostatitis. The key is to reboot and cultivate the
health, a person who has become stronger may alleviate the symptoms of prostatitis, but to
completely heal requires rebooting and health cultivation. According to my understanding, many
bodybuilding champions have illnesses, some have had a stroke, some are suffering from heart
conditions. Therefore, strength does not signify health, one must still rely on the words: reboot
and cultivate the health. Without knowledge in rebooting and health cultivation, becoming strong
is instead a big thing, this is comparable to martial artists stressing virtue, without virtue one is
prone to get into trouble.

Some brothers are emancipated but are free from digestive troubles, as long as these brothers
get the hang of how to work out they will rapidly become stronger. Some emancipated brothers
have big issues with digestion, where there is chronic diarrhea or poor absorption function. For
these cases I would advise to first bring the stomach back to normal and then do strength
training, gaining weight will then be more reliable. Otherwise, if you have a poor stomach, firstly,
the appetite is poor. Secondly, the absorption is not functioning properly, to gain muscle and
weight will then be relatively more difficult.

For those emancipated brothers who want to become strong, I would advise the below summary:

1. If there are no problems with digestion and absorption, I recommend studying more
professional bodybuilding knowledge. The best would be to find somebody to get you
started on exercising, combine it with increased eating and the body will become strong
rapidly.
2. For brothers that are suffering from digestive or absorption problems, it is advised to
adjust digestion and absorption to normal and start to work out from there, body weight
will then steadily increase.

Lastly, let’s talk about the issue of increasing brain power.

The phenomenon of decreasing brain power following masturbation is extremely widespread,


TCM: to the above, kidneys are connected to the brain. Masturbation injures the kidneys and so
must also injure the brain power, the main expression is that memory, concentration, thinking
ability and comprehension all take a downturn in varying degrees, giving the impression that the
person has become stupid, slow to react, lacking in patience, restless and easily angered.
When brain power goes down, doing anything becomes an issue, this is especially true for
students; students need to take exams which places a high requirement on the brain power.
The reduction of brain power from masturbation is undoubtedly a disaster for students.

Normally, to recover the brain power would require at least half a year of rebooting and health
cultivation. The recovery of brain power is a gradual process, the below aspects would need to
be met:

1. Strictly control the frequency of nocturnal emissions, nightly emissions greatly injures the
body and the brain power.
2. Determine to put a stop to sexual fantization, fantization depletes the essence invisibly.
3. Learn to cultivation the health, one needs to put a stop to the various ways of damaging
the kidney qi.
4. Actively exercise, emphasize aerobic exercises.
5. One may try silent meditation or standing horse-stance cultivation methods, including
kidney strengthening exercises.
6. Nutrients need to be maintained, moderately intake brain nourishing food.

When the above 6 points have been accomplished, the brain power will enjoy a substantial
recovery after half a year. When the brain power is increased, the person will become like brand
new, previously incomprehensible topics will be suddenly understood when you look at them
again, like having an aha moment. Actually, it is the lower brain power which was causing the
incomprehension, now that the brain power has been recovered, the topic is understood within a
glance. Determination, concentration, memory, and comprehension all will increase.

[Avatamsaka Sutra] scroll six: “Absorb the mind to relinquish, from relinquishment arises
calmness, from calmness, arises wisdom. These are known as the three learnings” Rebooting
has the ability to raise the level of wisdom, Buddhist philosophies are actually connected with
TCM, the saying goes that all great paths lead to the same source. Once the brain power has
been recovered, a change in destiny can be achieved, when the brain power is adequate,
everything you do will be inadequate; you feel as if you are unable to get into the zone. When
your brain power is good, the things that you previously did poorly in all becomes easier, your
destiny will then change accordingly. Take an important exam, for instance, when the brain
power is good you get one result, when the brain power is poor you get another result, such an
exam may change a person’s entire future. The same goes for job interviews when the brain
power is good one is unhindered in speech and is confident, when the brain power is lacking
you may not even understand the question that was directed at you, spewing out an incoherent
answer in return. Brain power is truly too important for a person, one must cut out masturbation.

Afterword:

Recently I read a post made by the well known “Uncle Tom” and was surprised at his speed of
advancement in realization, he was able to understand almost all of my posts and besides that
was hunting extensively for other rebooting articles, the improvement of his realization also
serves as encouragement for other brothers. There are already big changes in Tom’s thought
process, I have mentioned this, the first step to rebooting is to reform the thoughts, you must
give your awareness a tangible boost through studying. When the understanding has taken on a
new level, rebooting thereon will reach success easier, to otherwise rely on brute force
rebooting will only ensure failure.

The reason to why I’m writing down my experiences is to allow more brothers to really
understand it, once understood, your awareness will increase, when confronting various
rebooting issues you will then have a reliable answer, just like having to take a stabilizing pill,
the mind will no longer easily sway, thoughts of doubts no longer show up. Of course, there are
lots of articles on rebooting and health cultivation, everybody should search for them far and
wide, study broadly and without limit, constantly improving. My awareness and understanding
come from thorough personal experience and ceaseless studies to this day I still take some time
each day to study. I read Dharmas daily, read health cultivation articles frequently and study
rebooting cases every day, constantly discovering, thinking and understanding.

In sharing the contents of my own insights, I hope that everybody's’ awareness may constantly
increase. Even if you only advance a little every day, a year later your overall progress would be
staggering. The only worry is if you do not want to study or is fed up with studying, in that case,
you will have a hard time making a thorough reboot. To reboot, the thoughts must be
transformed, no matter which internet site you visit or which rebooting article you read, in every
case you are importing rebooting thoughts and awareness, it is transforming your thoughts
awareness. When you have recognized the importance in studying, you will go look for good
rebooting articles on your own in order to constantly study, rehearsing old material while
learning new material, once you have gotten into that study mentality, awareness will increase
by leaps and bounds. The more thorough that your thoughts rewire, the easier it is to
successfully reboot.

However, I need to stress a final point; when you have successfully rewired your thoughts and
increased your awareness, it’s still important to maintain daily vigilance. The alertful awareness
is very important, just like walking on a steel wire, not letting go of the vigilance.

In addition, after your thoughts have been rewired, you will notice that you will be out of tune
with the people around you because you have fully understood the truth of masturbation, you
have seen masturbation for what it really is. While most people are still apathetically indulging
themselves, fiercely rubbing themselves towards the road of self-destruction, completely
oblivious to the approaching symptoms. The society today has been polluted by the ideologies
of pornography and sexual debauchery, in addition to the harmlessness theories, therefore, the
vast majority of the people are bound to not see the truth clearly, this precisely confirms the
saying: the truth is controlled by a few people. We are bound to be the minority who knows the
truth, what we need to do is to find the proper timing and the method to help our brothers, to
help our former selves and in the process help ourselves.

Season 25 [Soaring Eagle experience: impotence, the mystery of time
to relapse and different forms of essence damage from masturbation]

Foreword:

Many brothers have now formed the awareness for studying on the rebooting forums, they are
no longer relying on brute force rebooting and have started to tread onto the correct path, their
rebooting efforts have become increasingly professional, this is a very good phenomenon. Once
the daily habit of studying rebooting articles has been established, where one is able to both
read and understand, the rebooting awareness and understanding will take on a huge upward
leap. This principle is actually comparable to internet gaming. If you play every day your level
will quickly rise, if you do not train your level you will not advance and remain a rookie. In the
aspect of internet games, one is abused by the opponent, in the aspect of rebooting, one is
abused by the temptation demon. Because the level of the temptation demon is higher than
your level, your level is too low, every encounter results in defeat. Therefore, one must increase
the level of awareness through constant studying, with awareness and understanding in place,
the temptation demon will have a hard time budging you.

I hope more brothers will share their experiences in the rebooting forums. Rookies need the
guidance from the forerunners, the most apparent trait with rookies is a large number of
misconceptions that they carry, not allowing them to understand problems clearly. Experience
posts will allow them to improve their awareness and lead them to the correct path of rebooting,
solidify their confidence and determination, avoid detours and hence improve the rate of
successful reboot.

After having researched into the topic of masturbation I have come to realize that there is only
one model for successful rebooting: increase the level of awareness through constant studies.
When there is enough awareness, rebooting becomes natural, once the awareness is very high,
all that’s needed is to maintain vigilance and the reboot will be thorough. Cultivating awareness
is like climbing a mountain, many people would stop climbing halfway and go back down.
Although lots of people are slow in their pace of climb, they persist in climbing and continue to
study rebooting articles, constantly increasing their awareness, although the pace is slow they
are steadily improving. In this way these people are still able to reach the peak of awareness,
when that time arrives and if they also strengthen their level of alertness, complete reboot can
be achieved.

My current level awareness was accumulated step by step, in the past I went about studying
rebooting articles in the following way: every day I would extract good rebooting quotes, this
also includes health cultivation contents because these two topics are interrelated. I had
extracted over 6 books worth of contents within a year of time. The demand that I placed upon
myself was to improve a little every day, after a month there would be a big improvement. Ever
since I started to extract rebooting articles, my awareness soared upwards, many
incompressible issues suddenly became clear, my head became successfully clearer. Afterward,
I looked into a large amount of TCM cases, the awareness again advanced forward. Nowadays
I would find time every day to read on Buddhist Dharma and TCM, trying to increase my scope
of thinking, without limits in studying there is no limit in improvement.

Many brothers claim that they cannot get into reading, as soon as they see a long article they
grow tired, after reading a line of text they become fed up. There are many brothers like this,

Page | 125
this is because the brain power decreases when the kidney essence is deficient, memory,
concentration and even comprehension all drops lower. What’s worse is that the mood following
debauchery becomes impatient and easily angered, “troubled appearance” emerges, one lacks
patience and determination when trying to do things and to study. I have previously experienced
this state of mind, whenever I looked at a screen full of text I would become annoyed and
wanted to look away. After a period of rebooting, the brain power has recovered somewhat and
my mind was able to quiet down again, slowly I was able to absorb the reading. After I was
absorbed the more I read the more I wanted to read, I extracted what I thought to be the best
quotes. Unbeknownst to me, my awareness took off. By often looking at previously read articles
and extracted quotes, this will have a reinforcing and refreshing effect and allow the awareness
to increase once again. When awareness has been raised to a certain level, you will notice that
you now have resistance against pornographic content, you are able to vanquish the temptation
demon, this, in reality, is the result of an increase in awareness.

As to the number of daily studies, I have arranged it in the following way: all according to my
state, if my mental state is good during a day and the interest is high, I would read more,
sometimes a dozen of pages, sometimes an entire chapter. When my interest level is very high I
could read a big portion of a book. But sometimes my state is not that good and my interest is
lacking, the amount of studying that I have planned for these times is at least a page every day.
It would only require a couple minutes to read through a page, no matter how impatient, one is
able to endure reading through a page. In this manner I’m able to ensure that my daily studies
do not halt, my awareness would then constantly increase, finally welcoming the great uplifting
in awareness. I would advise every brother to at least read a page of rebooting article every day,
it does not have to be a new article, reinforcing old articles is also very good. Do not stray away
from rebooting articles, you may also repeatedly read the contents that you have extracted, in
doing this your awareness will improve very quickly.

Some brothers would say that they like to look at pictures and not at long pages of text, they
cannot absorb it and find it to be annoying! My recommendation is to wait until you have been
rebooting for a while, once the brain power has recovered somewhat, allow yourself to look at
texts. Because the images that I have produced only serve as supplementary material, the most
important content is still the text. One need to professionally and systematically increase the
level of awareness, it is necessary to look through a large number of articles. Pictures are only
an assistance, articles are the main material, images are secondary, this point must be
understood.

Back to the old saying: the extraordinary power of rebooting comes from studying! Without
studying there will be no knowing, without studying the awareness will not increase. With the
successive increase of awareness, it will finally allow you to conquer masturbation and vanquish
the temptation demon.

We will enter into the main topic below.

In this season we will discuss in detail regarding the issue of impotence, the mystery of time to
relapse and difference forms of essence damage from masturbation, details can be found below:

In season 6 I have talked about the issue of impotence and premature ejaculation. Now that we
are in season 25, we can look into the topic more comprehensively and in more detail.

Page | 126
Among all the questions I have answered, quite a few of them belongs to the category of
premature ejaculation, soft erections, and impotence. When the essence has been damaged to
a certain degree, obstacles in the sexual function will arise. The symptom that I have
experienced the earliest is premature ejaculation, this showed up roughly after 2 years of
frequent masturbation, later I had soft erections, this symptom went on for more over a decade.
Because I loved sports at the time, had rhythmic resting and eating schedules, didn’t have any
internet addictions nor did I smoke, so during the years I was still able to achieve an erection but
the firmness was inadequate. Afterward when I started to stay up during the night and sat for
long periods at a time I encountered impotence. My impotence at the time was quite serious, I
needed to expend a huge amount of effort, in addition, to apply strong stimulation in order to
barely achieve an erection, moreover the firmness was lacking and I would quickly go soft, the
lack in stamina was apparent.

When premature ejaculation appears, the man becomes panicky, because the sexual function is
very important for men. The degree of panic is comparable to the panic experienced during hair
loss. When the sexual function is lacking the man feels shame in front of the ladies and lack
confidence. In addition, he worries about the wife cheating on him, therefore, men who suffer
from premature ejaculation bear huge psychological pressure, the mood of anxiety is heavy.

The worst part is that many people don’t have TCM health cultivation knowledge. When
premature ejaculation appears, their first reaction is to take supplements in order to strengthen
the yang and become strong once again, not allowing themselves to go soft at all cost. Under
this pattern of thinking, they would go look for all kinds of supplements. Some supplements
show a good effect in the beginning, but the body can also grow tired of supplements. When
taking them often the beneficial effect is not apparent. When the body has grown weary one
then has to switch to another supplement, the end result is to have gone over many big brand
kidney supplementing and yang strengthening medicine, the body still remaining in a weak state,
in addition there is a high chance of other bodily symptoms showing up in beside impotence, the
suffering is beyond words. In reality, because these people lack TCM health cultivation know-
how, they have misread the bodily signals from the very beginning, the ancient saying goes: the
younger generation should not be ignorant of medicine. If you are ignorant of medical
knowledge, you will stumble into misconceptions in many areas and choices, ultimately hurting
yourself. When a man encounters impotence, this bodily signal is the body crying for help,
telling you to not indulge any further. The principle is similar to when skin pores close when
being exposed to cold temperature. Many people are unaware of this principle, once impotent,
they instead take supplements and indulge themselves, lacking in rebooting and health
cultivation awareness altogether. They do not understand that the best supplement is actually:
no leak as the supplement. Because of this, they have chosen the wrong path, relying on
supplements to further indulge, the result can be imagined. In the future there will be a chance
of going complete impotent, even catching diabetes or a stroke.

Because that kidney qi is inadequate, the body chooses impotence for the purpose of self-
preservation. If you misread the signal and instead rely on supplements to indulge, the evil fruit
will certainly be incurred, this is the price of ignorance.

When a brother encounters premature ejaculation, soft erections, impotence, he needs to learn
to reboot and cultivate the health. If the symptoms are serious it is advised to see a traditional
Chinese doctor for treatment, taking herbal medicine will benefit the bodily recovery. But one
must emphasize the cultivation of the mind, or else the intake of herbal medicine will likely help
to fuel the desires, resulting in taking herbal medicine and indulging happening side by side.

Page | 127
The act of supplementing from the above while leaking from the below is detrimental to the
recovery process. If you cannot manage to reboot thoroughly but instead leak and supplement
simultaneously, I can be certain that the treatment effect will not be optimal, not long afterward
you will again find yourself with premature ejaculation. We then have a predicament in our
hands, as a matter of fact, there is a misunderstanding in the consciousness, if this
misunderstanding does not get corrected, the result will be that premature ejaculation will
remain after spending loads of money and taking a lot of medicine. Therefore, to be able to cure
a person’s premature ejaculation, one must first enlighten him, speak reason to him and let him
understand the principles, enlightenment will actually cure him, without enlightenment he will be
finished in this life. Quite a few brothers have already depleted themselves prior to getting
married, they have encountered premature ejaculation, their families are pushing them into
getting married, this makes him fear marriage, knowing the outcome, why did he do as he did?

Everybody should not lose hope, however, premature ejaculation, soft erection, and impotence
can all be recovered from. I have completely recovered due to the fact that my understanding
was in the correct place, there was no misunderstanding in my consciousness, I put effort into
health cultivation. Most importantly, I don’t do testing, because testing will lead one back into the
trap of masturbation. Everybody would certainly ask, how does one know that one has
recovered? Actually, whether or not one has recovered can be observed from the quality of the
morning erections. When the erection is firm and upright, the degree of firmness is high, this is
the bodily expression of recovery. If you attempt to test, then it is very possible to relapse
repeatedly, throwing away all the previous efforts. Many people like to test, the result is that
once having attempted, they are unable to stop and have again started to indulge.

According to my experiences, the recovery time for premature ejaculation and soft erections is
approximately at least half a year, impotence would require at least a year of rebooting and
health cultivation. In order to recover, one must do well in all areas, the most important
conditions are to control the number of nocturnal emissions and put a stop to sexual fantization,
once these two points have been achieved plus efforts made into health cultivation, the sexual
function will then slowly recover. I have been through all this, as long as you have the
confidence and patience, constantly study to raise the awareness, manage to thoroughly reboot,
increase health cultivation awareness, the sexual function will be able to recover for sure. The
only thing to be afraid of is misconceptions in thought, recovery will be very difficult in such
cases. Premature ejaculation can be grouped as mild, medium or severe. If mild, the recovery
time will be relatively fast, if severe, then the recovery time will be even longer and the difficulty
great, but as long as one is persistent in rebooting and health cultivation and is doing well in all
areas, it is still recoverable.

In addition, some people suffer from premature ejaculation due to nervousness, when
masturbating alone there is no problem. Western medicine blame this condition on the
psychological problem. Actually, the emergence of nervousness and the depletion of the kidney
qi is inseparable, because the body and the mind is one, if the kidney qi has been depleted,
corresponding changes will take place in a person’s emotional psychology. Some people have
not been suffering from nervousness in the past, after they have started to masturbate they
become nervous, irritated and easily angered, this, in reality, is the expression of depleted
kidney essence. One may even become nervous while urination and only been able to pass
urine when nobody else is around. This time of nervousness obstacles may also be overcome
through persistent rebooting and health cultivation, once the kidney qi has been cultivated into
abundance, the body and the mind will all return to their normal states.

In the below let’s talk about the mystery of the time to relapse.

Very few people know about this field of knowledge. Firstly, one must be familiar with TCM
medical principles. In addition, one needs to have consulted cases with feedback, only after
thorough research is one able to experience this field of knowledge.

Among the cases that I have researched into, quite a few brothers have remarked; why is it that
every time I relapse, the time of recovery is different? Sometimes recovery would take place
several days following a relapse, sometimes the symptoms would linger on for several weeks or
even several months, why is it like this? To be able to answer this question, one needs to be
familiar with the level of yang qi in the human body. The level of yang qi in the body is different
during different periods of the day, it also varies during the times of the month, it again varies
with the seasons. If you have indulged during the time when your yang qi level is low, then it will
be relatively difficult to recover. This principle is actually very easy to understand. Suppose that
you make a call when the phone balance is very low, it’s very possible that your balance is no
longer valid after a single call, but when you make a call when the phone balance is very high
then there is no problem.

The yang qi level in the human body also undergoes constant change, fluctuating between
highs and lows, the overall pattern of change can be found below:

Daily change: between 11pm-1am the yang starts to become active, at noon the ying starts to
become active. Hence in the way of the health cultivation, no sexual activities are to take place
between 11pm-1am, in order to avoid the depletion of yang qi. This is because during 11pm-
1am the yang qi is just starting to rise, like a tiny spark, sexual activities during this time will
greatly injure the yang qi, giving rise to symptoms more easily. Yang qi grows from 11pm-1am
and becomes successively greater, reaching the zenith by noon and then declines. This is
followed by the rise of ying starting from noon and its gradual increase towards the maximum at
11 pm, after that ying starts to decline and yang starts to become active, this is the cycle. When
it comes to exercise it is best to do it before noon. Because then the yang qi will be in the rising
stage, exercising during this time coincides with the time of the Heaven, the effect will be
superior. Normally, towards the evening it is suitable to cultivate quietness, this is because the
ying qi is heavy during the evening, exercising and sweating during this time greatly damages
the yang qi. When everybody has understood this principle they will be in a better position to
choose the time for exercising.

The 12 time periods in the ancient times:

Monthly changes:

Every month, the moon will have its brightness and dimness, waxing and waning. We can base
the monthly changes of the yang qi on the changes in the moon. At the beginning of the month,
the crescent moon is barely showing, yang qi is gradually growing and being released. The
phase of the moon gradually becomes fuller and turns into the first quarter moon, in this stage of
the moon as it steadily becomes rounder, the yang qi is in its most vigorous period of
development and release, the vital energy inside the human body is likewise in its most active
state. Once the full moon has passed, yang qi has reached its full strength and starts to give
room for ying qi. Yang qi slowly goes into the accumulation stage as the phase of the moon
gradually moves from fullness to deficiency. During the 22nd or the 23rd day, we have the third
quarter of the waning moon. Past the third quarter the luminous surface of the moon gradually
diminishes up until the 30th day, the moon vanishes from sight, only a shadow remains, this is
the last day of the lunar month. The entire metamorphosis of the lunar phenomenon is in reality
example of the change in the yang qi. Therefore, try not to engage in sexual activities when the
yang qi is weak and the ying qi is heavy, or else symptoms may easily arise.

Yearly changes:

Summer solstice gives rise to ying, winter solstice gives rise to yang.

Spring gives birth, summer gives growth, autumn gives restraint, winter gives storage. The word
cultivation actually only mentions ¼ of the health cultivation path, in addition, there is growth
during the summer, restraint during the autumn and storage during the winter. Therefore, try to
refrain from sexual activities during winter. Winter is a season for the accumulation of essence
in preparation for the coming year. If indulgence takes place during winter, then the energy
available for growth in the coming year will be diminished. Therefore, if you have indulged
during winter in this year, then next year your body may experience symptoms. One should not
indulgence especially during winter. Because winter solstice gives rise to yang, yang qi is right
in the middle of a weak state, relapsing at this stage will easily induce bodily symptoms and is
not favorable towards the recovery process. Store essence during the winter, once stored, good
health in the following year can be ensured.

In ancient times there is a learning about selecting auspicious dates, nowadays it is no longer
widespread. Many young people are unaware of the fact that only a selected few able people
are truly able to understand the learning. Doing certain things during certain times is very
important because there are deep principles behind it. When brothers relapse during different
seasons, the speed of the bodily recovery is different, because the level of yang qi in the human
body differs for every season. When you relapse during a time when then yang qi is weak, then
you have committed a taboo, the body will have a difficult time recovering. When you relapse
when the yang qi is flourishing then it is relatively easier to recover.

Regarding times of relapse that are considered to be taboo, I believe that many brothers have
seen the “Nine Poison Days”, nine poison days, according to the Chinese lunar calendar falls on
the old calendar date of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 25th, 26th, 27th, these 9 days been
called the “9 poison days of the intermingling between heaven and earth”. There are 9
poisonous days in May acting as taboo days for sexual indulgence! Therefore, there are
customs in ancient times, in May the wife is to go and visit her parents for a month, extra
caution is needed during those 9 poisonous days. There is for sure basis behind these 9

Page | 130
poisonous days, we would rather believe that they exist than not. Because according to my
research, there is a lag effect to the retribution of relapsing. Sometimes the symptoms will not
show up right away, they may show up after tens of days or even after 100 days. Because
therein lies a butterfly effect and time is needed for this effect to develop.

We need to understand taboos and try not to violate them, this will benefit our health, knowing
leads to strength, ignorance leads to aging. If you know to avoid violating taboos, then many
dangers may be avoided. For detailed contents into this topic, I would recommend everybody to
look into [寿康宝鉴], there are specific contents on “preserving life rebooting period and the
taboo of heaven and earth”, understanding this area of knowledge is truly very important.

Lastly, we will talk about the different degree of essence injuries induced by masturbation.

This topic has been suggested by a brother due to the many symptoms that he was suffering
from. He doesn’t know how serious his injuries are and so he suggested me to make a rough
classification of the essence damage expressions, this way he may also gain a clue for himself.
If you have extensively researched into cases in essence injured victims, you will for sure
discover that many people are exhibiting multiple expressions from damaged essence. There
are many categories of injured essence accompanying the collapse in health, the symptoms are
not singular, below is my general categorization on the degrees of essence damage:

1. Urinary system illness: prostatitis, urinary tract inflammation, varicocele etc.


2. Respiratory system illness: lung illness, including rhinitis, asthma etc.
3. A serious decrease in brain power: concentration, memory, comprehension decreasing
in varying degrees.
4. Stone related: kidney stone, urinary stones etc.
5. Skin symptoms: various forms of skin illnesses, including acne, hives etc.
6. Hair issue: hair loss and greying as the main factors.
7. Digestive system illness: enteritis, constipation, diarrhea, weak digestion and absorption
etc.
8. Frequent nocturnal emission issue: frequent nightly emissions is also an illness.
9. Ugliness issue: too many forms of ugliness.
10. Sexual function obstacles: premature ejaculation, soft erections.
11. Heart issues: palpitation, premature beat etc.
12. Waist pain soft legs: waist pain and soreness, waist and knee soreness.
13. Cervical spine issue: different forms of cervical spinal issues.
14. Tinnitus issue: kidney deficiency induced tinnitus.
15. Excessive sweating, excessive oil: these two forms are quite common.
16. Sight issue: decrease in eyesight, eye floater etc.
17. Other illnesses: roughly over 100 forms, kidney deficiency gives rise to many illnesses.

Even if many symptoms are not directly caused by masturbation, they will still be intricately
linked to it, because kidney essence is the health currency of the human body.

Point 1-17 does not involve psychological issues, although they are very bothersome for
brothers, they will not make one’s life a living hell. Of course, these 17 categories are relatively
general and can only be considered as a rough classification. Below are mainly psychological
issues:

Page | 131
1. Anxiety
2. Depression
3. Neurasthenia
4. Autonomous nervous disorders
5. Obsessive-compulsive disorder
6. Paranoia
7. Autism
8. Phobia
9. Hypochondria

Of course, these psychological issues that I have mentioned are not purely psychological but
also contains some element of physical symptoms. For instance, the mood of anxiety is not the
same as having anxiety, anxiety has a range of bodily symptoms. Once one has caught these
issues, many people want to die. Among those people who visit anxiety or depression support
groups, many are very desperate, the symptoms of these illnesses are indeed very strange,
everything is present. If you are not a victim yourself and talk with these victims, perhaps you
will think that they are telling fantasy stories, it is indeed like that, only those who have had
personal experience will know what the sufferers are going through. When I had anxiety and
neurasthenia, I was in a state of despair and collapse on a daily basis, the thought of suicide
came up multiple times. Because the condition was truly like a living hell, you will think that
death may be preferable, normal people would not understand that kind of feeling. Some
sufferers are afraid to go out or sit in a car, normal people would wonder how they can be so
timid. Actually, once injured to a certain degree, the human courage will really shrink to that of a
mouse, because the kidneys govern fright, fright injures the kidneys. When kidneys are deficient
to a certain degree, a person would become very timid, as if being a totally different person.
Previously when I was ill I would not dare to venture outside, now that I have recovered I
thought it was unbelievable, how could I have been so timid before? I fully understand now, it is
the serious depletion of the kidney essence, caused by sexual indulgence, staying up late at
night which has injured the nerves.

Therefore, if you belong to the 1-17 category, that is good, you will not wish to die that much. If
you have additional serious psychological illnesses, the problem is then relatively serious,
recovery time will be longer and the difficulty greater. Many anxiety patients are unable to
recover in 5 or even over 10 years, they rely on medication all year around. In reality, anxiety
and other psychological illnesses must require an awakening in understanding as a condition to
recovery, medicines will be able to alleviate but not to cure completely. One must learn to
cultivate the health and understand to treasure the kidney essence. Otherwise, although you are
temporarily alleviated by medicine, symptoms will still easily relapse, because you have not
recognized the true cause of the disease.

Concluding remarks:

Occasionally, some brother would ask whether masturbation will lead to bad luck. From the
surface, masturbation and luck are not really connected, in reality, a certain relationship does
exist. Because masturbation will induce lower brain power. When the brain power is normal,
many things can be managed properly, but when the brain power has decreased, many things
that normally would not a challenge cannot be managed properly, from the surface it seems like
one’s luck has become worse. Take an exam, for instance, some people would say, why was I
so forgetful at the time, why didn’t I think of it at the time, my luck is so poor. Actually, the root

Page | 132
issue of this bad luck is due to decreased brain power. Because the brain power has decreased,
you will no be in shape, at this time our luck will naturally become worse.

Compare again to an interview. The first impression we give out to the interviewer is very
important, but a person immersed in masturbation will lack spirit in his eyes, his demeanor will
be like a ghost, even with the appearance of black eye rings and eye bags, a look of decadence,
without confidence and feeling inferior. When such a person goes to an interview, the success
rate will naturally not be high. Many brothers have interviewed more than a dozen times without
a single time of success, they blame their own bad luck, in reality, is it is ugliness induced by
masturbation, a lack of Spirit. If your vitality is abundant, looking radiant, full of self-confidence,
the impression you give to the interviewer will be completely different. This kind of abundant
vitality is able to affect the interviewer, he will think that you are very dynamic, and the company
is in need of such dynamic and vigor youth.

Season 26 [Soaring Eagle experience: rebooting fed up period, the
issue of excessive sweating and the issue of vision]

The fed up period associated with rebooting is an issue that cannot be avoided, it is also an
issue that must be overcome, many brothers have already reported this issue to me.

If one frequents the rebooting forums often, then one will discover a phenomenon and that is
coming and going of many people. Many people start out with a high level of determination
when first starting to reboot, their enthusiasm is at a climax, “mustering up courage during the
first battle, courage declines in the second battle, courage is exhausted in the third battle”
cannot be helped. Before several weeks have passed these people have altogether
disappeared, they have returned to the past. Especially for brothers who have relapsed
repeatedly, once relapsed their determination and enthusiasm will take a big hit, after a while of
rebooting they no longer feel like continuing, they do not see any hope except for despair and
helplessness. In reality, this is the fed up period in rebooting. No matter who you are, there will
be a fed up period. This fed up mood is also prevalent in other fields; when you listen to a song
for instance, in the beginning you like how it sounds, after listening to it for several weeks you
might get tired of it, the feeling that you once harbored towards the song cannot be found again,
what remains is weariness and impatience. The same principle applies to diet, in the beginning
we like to eat a certain delicacy, if you eat every day you may want to throw up after a while.
Still the same works for cell phones; in the beginning we really want to own a certain model,
after a while of usage our desire for it wanes, we think that the cell phone is not that special
after all, the original feeling of enthusiasm is long gone.

We should put it like this, human being is an animal that easily finds itself bored.

In the world of rebooting this is no different, many brothers are tired of studying, tired of
rebooting articles, they are too lazy to read and to study and are easily annoyed. Whenever the
fed up mood shows up it easily leads to relapses, this is like a squadron of soldiers having
depressed morale, many people don’t want to go to battle and want to become deserters, this
kind of squadron lacks fighting strength altogether. If you run into the fed up mood, you need to
learn to cope with it immediately, adjust the mood right away in order to allow the fighting spirit
to regain its fullness. A squadron without morale is like a plate of loose sand, a squadron with
morale will have strong cohesiveness, every soldier will be like a tiger coming down the
mountain. Buddhist cultivation also pays particular attention to bravely forging ahead, no room
for a slack mind and maintaining perseverance. But people can hardly avoid having a tiresome
mood, this is because people have a laziness tendency. Therefore, whenever the fed up mood
appears, we need to make immediate adjustments, just like a watch that is going too slow, we
will need to readjust it to the correct time.

In the below we will talk about methods of adjustments.

Truth be told, I have also encountered the fed up mood, but I have re-adjusted it rapidly. Herein
lies a concept and that is emotional intelligence (EQ), EQ is the IQ of emotions, it involves self-
control, enthusiasm, perseverance as well as self-propelling and the ability to self-encourage.
EQ is different from IQ, EQ can be trained after birth, it can be gained through learning. When
you have learned to adjust your mood through studying, then you will be in full control of your
mood and not be controlled by it. A person’s mood may dominate one’s actions, many brothers
relapse due to emotions; the emergence of a bored and depressing mood is immediately

Page | 134
channeled into masturbation for relief. If you have a high EQ and knows how to adjust the mood,
then emotional relapse will not take place. Therefore, we must learn to adjust our mood, this is
especially important in the path of rebooting. When the mood of boredom and depression
occurs we will need to make immediate adjustments, when the fed up mood appears we will
also need to correct it right away. We need to allow our fighting spirit to pull itself together once
again, rebooting properly every day.

Not only does studying rebooting articles lead one to become fed up but the same applies to
answering questions. Jia Xing has reported to me that he has become fed up with answering
questions, he has contemplated the thought of retiring. During this time I advised him to
emphasize recuperation, to not overstrain himself and to not answer too many questions when
he is in a bad mood, otherwise if he attempts to answer questions when the mind is tired he will
become even more tired, under this condition one will easily contemplate retiring, to quit
whatever he is doing so to speak.

Studying rebooting articles works in the same way. In the beginning one is full of enthusiasm,
you are able to take in a huge quantity of knowledge. But after a certain stage, you may grow
tired of studying. When that time comes, you may make some adjustments; decrease the
amount of intake, one article per day will suffice or read a couple of cautionary cases every day.
When not studying, take care to maintain a high level of vigilance, do not let the temptation
demon take any advantages. When this low period has passed you will once again be able to
find that optimal rebooting state.

Specific adjustments method are found in the below summary: (taking jogging as an example, I
hope that everybody will have an easier time reaching an understanding)

1. Whenever the fed up mood comes up, one needs to learn to redistribute the bodily strength,
do not overstrain. Just like when running 1500m, when one is unable to run any further, do
not stop, run slowly but keep going.

2. Learn to motivate oneself, motivating oneself is a form of mood adjustment, enabling one to
pull together the emotions. This is comparable to when running while at the same time
telling yourself: I can do it, I can finish it, I can make it.

3. When encountering adverse moods, allow oneself to maintain positive and optimistic. Don’t
get engrossed in a depressing and decadent mood. This is comparable to when one is no
longer able to keep running, you want to give up, a voice is telling you that persistence is
equivalent to victory.

I have mentioned before that during rebooting, sexual fantization is one obstacle, the other
obstacle is frequent emissions, these are the two tigers on the rebooting path. If you are able to
conquer these two obstacles then half the victory is assured. If in addition you are able to assail
the mood obstacle, then you will able to reboot more stable and for a longer duration.

In the below let’s talk about the issue of excessive sweating.

Brothers have raised the issue of excessive sweating quite frequently in recent days. Although
right now we are at the beginning of Autumn, the weather is still very hot, the slightest
movement still easily leads to sweating. In sweating, it must be established whether it is due to
normal physiological reasons or pathological reasons. Pathological sweating is hyperhidrosis,

Page | 135
the reason being that it is an expression the central nervous system being out of tune.
According to the TCM point of view, excessive sweating is caused by imbalances in the ying
and yang. Excessive sweating at this very moment is main due to seasonal factors, if you sweat
just as easily during the other seasons then it is no longer normal, it is a sign that your body will
need adjustments. The best would be to seek out a traditional Chinese medicine doctor and
combine treatment with Chinese herbal medicine, afterward, persist in rebooting and health
cultivation, the body will then slowly adjust itself.

Actually, when the body has been damaged to a certain degree, 2 conditions would easily
appear:

1. Excessive sweating
2. No sweating

Excessive sweating is relatively more common while no sweating is comparatively less common.
Illnesses induced by masturbation usually takes on 2 extremes, some people would secrete
more oil, others would have dry skin, the former case is relatively more common. Medical
science clearly categories sweating: self-sweat, night sweat, head sweat, half body sweat, palm
and sole sweats etc. The most commonly seen is self-sweat and night sweat. When it comes to
self-sweat, it is when one sweat involuntarily, it normally takes place during the day when it is
not all that hot and without the presence of physical activities. Night sweat according to medical
science is when sweating while sleeping during the night, upon awakening the sweating stops.
In masturbation induced kidney deficiency, regardless if it’s ying or yang deficiency there will be
the symptom of excessive sweating. Many people sweat in large quantities as if being washed
in the entire body, while in TCM it is mentioned: he who sweats, also losses essence. A large
amount of sweating injuries the yang, if the quantity of sweating is very large, it is very
unfavorable towards the bodily recovery process. Therefore, brothers suffering from the
symptom of excessive sweating would do good to seek timely medical treatment, match
treatment with Chinese herbal medicine in order to solve the issue of excessive sweating. I
believe that your recovery process will take on another level and that the recovery will be more
thorough and stable than it has been previously.

Some brother would ask, why does it feel good to have sweated following physical exercises
when there are not any feelings of discomfort. This only shows that your yang qi has not been
damaged to a certain extent, when the injury is serious and you sweat profusely following
physical exercises, it is very unfavorable to the health. Therefore, when the body is weak it is
recommended to cultivate stillness, exercise will mainly take on the form of walking. The
mentioned principle also shares similarities with emissions; many people enjoy a good health,
one emission will not bring about any feelings of discomfort. But some people have sexually
indulged in the past, if they would have a emission nowadays, symptoms would immediately
appear and they would feel uncomfortable. This being the principle, once the damage has been
sustained to a certain degree, many things are not as one has previously imagined them to be.
Of course, sweating in moderation is also beneficial to the body, it enables the expulsion of evil
toxins, but excessive sweating will be damaging to the body. When many people increase their
exercise load they would experience emission during the night and a return of the symptoms,
therefore, when the body is weak, emphasize stillness cultivation. Once the yang qi has
gradually become more abundant, moderate exercises may be undertaken, this will be
beneficial to the recovery process. I would recommend everybody to make adjustments
according to their bodily reactions following exercising. Some brothers would not experience
any discomforts after exercising, in this case, they may continue to exercise while paying

Page | 136
attention to the intensity, more is not always better. Other brothers may experience discomfort
after having exercised or the re-emergence of symptoms, this condition suggests that you are
not yet suited for this type of exercises, one may choose stillness cultivation, decrease the
number of physical exercises, do some Eight-Brocade qigong, take walks, once the kidney qi
has been accumulated into abundance, slowly pick up physical exercises from there while
paying attention to moderation.

As to the many symptoms induced by masturbation, I recommend to actively treat all of them
and not blindly to request you to reboot and cultivate the health without treatment. Things that
should be treated are to be treated, combine treatment with rebooting and health cultivation and
the recovery process will be relatively speedy. Of course, there are those brothers who do not
take any medicines but rely purely on rebooting and health cultivation and have recovered in
this way, these brothers usually have great insight into health cultivation. When one has made
the proper efforts into health cultivation, this is also very beneficial to the recovery process.
Although many brothers have undergone active treatment they have not paid attention to
rebooting and health cultivation, treatment under this case will not be ideal. Because recovery
depends on 30% treatment and 70% cultivation, health cultivation is the real key. Famous
physicians in the past have always given advice to their patients such as: stay away from sexual
activities, moderation in diet, arise and sleep early, do not overstrain, etc. The reason to why
many brothers are unable to recover from chronic prostatitis after a long time of treatment is
because they have not understood rebooting and health cultivation, tens of thousands of
treatment fees will not make them better. If you really understood the importance of rebooting
and health cultivation then the result will be totally different. Chronic prostatitis that I’ve had for
over a decade is completely recovered, tests are all normal and symptoms have disappeared.
Therefore, if symptoms are present, treatment is needed but more importantly one needs to
cultivate, or else full recovery will be difficult. Many people have temporarily recovered due to
the use of medicines, once they indulge the symptoms immediately returns.

Lastly let’s talk about the issue of vision.

[太素脉]: The eyes contain all the essence of the body, if the body is not healthy then the eyes
will not have spirit.

TCM also mentions: The essence of the five viscera and six bowels are all contained in the eyes!
And so a person’s eyes is the reflection of the state of one’s five viscera and six bowels. In
addition, the kidneys conceal the essence and hold the quintessence of the essence from the
five viscera and six bowels. Therefore, when masturbation has injured the kidney qi, the
following changes will easily appear with regards to the eye region of a person:

1. Lack of spirit in the eyes.


2. Lack of light in the eyes.
3. Muddy eyeballs.
4. Bloodshot eyes.
5. Shrunken eyes.
6. Eyelid changes.
7. Dark circles and bags under the eyes.
8. Sluggish eyes, ineffective eye movements.
9. Hollowed eye sockets.
10. Decrease in vision.
11. Eye floaters.

Page | 137
12. Conjunctivitis.

Among them, the issue of vision is of relative more concern among brothers, especially for
those who are students. The decrease in vision is indeed a very big disturbance. There are
many reasons for decreased vision, details can be found below:

1. Poor viewing habits.


2. Overstraining of the eyes.
3. Genetics.
4. Addicted to masturbation.
5. Illnesses with the eyes.

Masturbation should not directly cause a decrease in vision but indirectly causes it. Although
many people such as elementary school students do not masturbate, they still suffer from
impaired vision and wear glasses, this conditions is induced by genetics and poor viewing habits.
Yet some people start off with excellent vision but suffer from a serious decline in their vision
after becoming addicted to masturbation, the indirect reason should be considered in these
cases. By also including poor viewing habits and the overstraining of the eyes, vision issues will
easily arise. Through rebooting and health cultivation, the state of the vision has hopes to
improve, discomfort in the eyes will also be alleviated. If vision issue is very bothersome for you,
laser adjustments in the future may be considered.

Normally, by being persistent in rebooting and cultivating the health, a person’s eyes will once
again regain spirit, determination and brilliance. Brilliance is a very subtle feeling, just like the
luminance of a light bulb, some light bulbs are bright while others are dim. While a person has
an abundance of yang qi, this is reflected in the brightness and brilliance of the eyes. On the
other hand, there is the lack of vitality and dimness. If you observe children you will notice that
not only do they have great skin, an obvious quality besides it is their bright and spirited eyes,
this gives out a clear and adorable feeling. But the eyes of grown-ups is very much inferior, on
one hand, their bodies have already been leaking, on the other hand their bodies have taken
injuries due to their lifestyle habits such as smoking, staying up late at night and sitting for long
periods at a time, these are naturally reflected in the eyes. Back when I was addicted to
masturbation, my eyes lacked spirit and determination, it was a feeling of lack of self-confidence.
Nowadays I’m totally different, my eyes have once again regained spirit through rebooting and
health cultivation, I’m more confident now and is able to look people in the eye.

I recommend brothers who suffer from vision issues to establish good viewing habits, limit the
time that you spend on the internet, keep a good posture and distance when reading and
studying, pay attention to rest. Afterward, one must cut out masturbation, learn to cultivate the
health, increase the intake of nutrients. In this way, the issue of declining vision will become
effectively controlled.

Season 27 [Soaring Eagle experience: directly tackling long sitting,
underestimating the enemy, foamy urine issue]

Foreword:

The former big forum legend Mayan has made a post where he introduced his insights on
rebooting, he also sorted out the course of development for the rebooting forums. Mayan is
among the earliest figures in the rebooting forums and has made outstanding contributions to
the community. Mayan’s personal experiences have been a helping force for many people and
are worthy of respect. As to the discussions started by 75, it allowed people to see the reason to
why harmlessness theories are running so rampant because behind it there are people or
groups of people who are purposely spreading the harmlessness theories. Many of such
theories are made up, then carefully disguised and labeled as research done by a certain
country, rookies who are ignorant are very easily misled by it. The discourse by Mayan and 75
will help everyone to recognize the true face of the harmlessness theories and the culprit behind
them.

Actually, harmlessness theories have existed for a long time. I remember reading a magazine at
the end of the 90s, there was an article which promoted the harmlessness theory. At the time I
believe that the harmlessness theories were a result of misconceptions from the author, unlike
the theories today, with ever more exaggerated arguments and sensational contents as if one
would die if one does not masturbate. Personal computers were not yet widespread during the
end of the 90s, harmlessness theories could basically not be found, let alone the propagation of
rebooting experiences. I was totally ignorant at the time, I remember seeing an add for kidney
supplementary medicine, there was a line on the product: deficient kidneys, a hundred illness
will arise from it. That sentence was my only exposure towards the truth for over a decade of my
life. In addition, kidney deficiency was the only thing mentioned, there was no mentioning about
masturbation. Nowadays is the age of the internet, more youth have the chance to come into
contact with harmlessness theories via the platform of the internet. One could say the youth of
today are fortunate but they are also unfortunate because this age is flooded with pornographic
poison. Pornography existed in the 90s but is nowhere as flooded as it is today. Pornography is
everywhere on the internet, web portals are full of suggestive material while it is all too easy to
download videos from the internet. Many youths have an internet addiction, those with such
addiction sit for a long time in front of the computer, this already has a damaging effect on the
health, combine it with the ravage of masturbation and the chances to encounter bodily
symptoms becomes very high.

To successfully reboot one must clearly recognize harmlessness theories. In reality, this is the
first gate of rebooting. Not clearly recognizing harmlessness theories will sooner or later lead
one to sway. Many brothers become swayed when viewing harmlessness theories, their
rebooting determination is no longer as firm. Therefore we need to keep away from
harmlessness theories, keep away from false wisdom and erroneous views. The biggest flaw in
the theory of harmlessness in moderation is this: it totally ignores the highly addictive quality in
masturbation. Everybody thinks that they are able to achieve moderation but I can clearly tell
you, ordinary people can in no way achieve moderation, talking about moderation after
becoming hooked is ridiculous. In addition, not a single person knows where the line to
moderation lies. Everybody knows that water boils at 100 degrees Celsius, but nobody knows
how badly the body is damaged before the onset of the symptoms appears. Because
everybody’s constitution is different, some people may not experience any symptoms while

Page | 139
masturbating 3 times per week, others may run into symptoms while masturbating once per
week. For that same person who masturbates 3 times per week, dare you say that he will not
experience any symptoms 3 years down the road? 3 times per week will guarantee that he will
not have any symptoms due to his good constitution, he is able to handle 3 years, but
symptoms will appear in the 4th year. Some people may say that they are able to limit the times
they masturbate to once per week, what I want to say is, are you able to control sexual
fantization? Sexual fantization is the invisible form of depletion, normally for people who
masturbate they are also addicted to fantization. He thinks that once per week is not a big deal,
in reality, he is shedding more via sexual fantization. Just like that, without being aware of it, the
symptoms have come to knock on the door!

The first time I came to visit the rebooting forums was about a year ago, at the time the forum
only had a couple hundreds of members, today the number is over 30 000, this is inseparable
from the promotional efforts that everybody has put down. The booming of the rebooting forums
is the result of everyone’s efforts. I have not communicated with Mayan but have had many
exchanges with Potato. Although Potato is not a big poster anymore, he still frequents the
forums. To have persisted until this day is not an easy feat for Potato, one needs to have
overcome a lot of resistance to make it, it requires great willpower. The overall atmosphere of
the rebooting forums has improved a lot since the early days, already a group of knowledgeable
and insightful brothers is on the rise, they are pushing the forums towards a better development.
This is unimaginable in the early days when many questions would go unanswered, therefore
the rookies of today are fortunate. The seniors of the rebooting forums have already paved the
way for you, upon entering you are led onto the right path and is able to avoid many detours.
Being rookies, you should all treasure the opportunity to study the rebooting articles and allow
yourselves to reboot more professionally.

Back when I came to the rebooting forums I noticed a phenomenon, many threads were about
the discussion of the harm from masturbation. There are also brothers who share their own
experiences in order to warn others. But there were very few deep studies on the behavior of
masturbation, there were also equally few guidances given on the specifics, many doubtful
brothers were unable to gather a satisfactory answer. Everybody should know that once doubt
arises one easily contemplates quitting, the arising of doubt also induces relapses. Back then,
because I suffered from general anxiety disorder and neurasthenia, I have been researching
into neurosis for a very long time. After having been chatting with over a thousand neurosis
patients, having gone through a copious amount of comparisons and in-depth analysis on the
pathogenic causes, a formula finally came up: staying up at night + indulgence + sitting for a
long period at a time = finished. As long as the patient is male, this formula will more or less
apply.

My research is based on a large number of cases and is not a result of guesswork. When doing
any type of research it is important to collect first-hand case information, through deep analysis
one may then come up with a certain pattern. Back then I have chatted with over a thousand
anxiety patients from all age groups, the oldest was over 50 and the youngest was 16 years old.
Then I realized that indulgence is intricately connected with the said illness, kidneys is rooted in
the original qi, the spleen has its source in the prenatal qi. Indulgence damages the kidneys,
long-term sitting damages the kidneys and the spleen, staying up late injuries the essences
even more. These three factors are like hatchets hacking away at the tree of life, it would be
very strange indeed if no symptoms appeared. Subsequently, I went from researching into
anxiety syndrome to studying the behavior of masturbation because there are commonalities

Page | 140
between the two. Up until today, I have chatted with over a thousand brothers, gathered in
thousands of cases and have seen basically every symptom out there.

I have personally experienced many symptoms and have completely recovered from them. Not
long ago I was still in the state of ignorance and naivety. I thought there was no way to heal
from prostatitis and that hair loss would also be difficult to recover from. Today, through the
efforts made in rebooting and health cultivation, I have recovered from both prostatitis and hair
loss. One sentence, if you want to get well, one must increase interaction with people who have
recovered. If you always interact with those who had yet to recover then you will be fed with the
thoughts of not being able to recover. My position is that the reboot must be thorough, health
cultivation must be proper, once both of these are in place there is the foundation to make a full
recovery. One then combines these with active treatment and many illnesses are curable. If you
cannot manage to reboot and cultivate properly, recovery will be difficult no matter what
medicine you take, even if you manage to temporarily recover, relapses will become highly likely.

I emphasize rebooting but I emphasize health cultivation even more. Those brothers who are
following my articles know that I place a high importance on health cultivation. Because I have
found out that rebooting is not a panacea, on the contrary, rebooting is only the beginning. Many
brothers have been rebooting for 8 months and even for a year, their bodily recovery is not ideal,
no huge improvements were to be seen. The reality is a lack of understanding in health
cultivation, a lack of knowledge in health cultivation, too many leakages in other areas. I have
been talking about this issue quite thoroughly in season 12, those friends who haven’t seen it
may go and have a look, quickly learn to cultivate the health as it will be quite beneficial to your
recovery process. Let’s take another example, although a brother has been rebooting for 2
years, he was unable to conquer frequent emissions, after 2 years of rebooting his health is
unchanged, this is bitterness beyond words. Therefore, following rebooting one must pass both
levels of emission and sexual fantizations, or else it is too unfavorable to the recovery process,
remember at all cost.

Let’s enter into the main topic below.

This season we will talk in detail about the issue of long-term sitting, underestimating the enemy
and foam in the urine, the details can be found below.

I have mentioned the issue of long-term sitting in season 7, right now I feel the need to
emphasize it once again. We may also go into even more details. Once I found the following
text in a book about health cultivation: Illness takes place in between the moment when one
puts and takes off clothes. The meaning is that when you think it’s hot and removes your clothes,
that’s when you catch a cold and become sick. What I would like to say is: sickness is also in
between standing and sitting. Long-term sitting damages people in the same manner as the frog
in the boiling pot; in the beginning, you may think it’s comfortable, unknowingly you are taking
damage. Long-term sitting, just by the simple motion of sitting, the liver, kidneys and the spleen
have been damaged. Long-term sitting is surely accompanied by long-term viewing, otherwise,
why do you sit for long periods of time? Long-term sitting injures the kidneys, the bladder
channel comes under constriction. Long-term sitting injures the spleen, spleen governs the
muscles, therefore long-term sitting also injures movement. Long-term viewing injures the liver
because liver opens up in the eyes. Many people disapprove long-term sitting, actually, it was
mentioned long ago in TCM that long-term sitting shortens the lifespan. Furthermore, modern
research in Western medicine has also confirmed this point, there are many articles about the

Page | 141
harmful effects from long-term sitting from the Western medicine perspective. Many people are
rebooting and have effectively controlled their fantasies, but their internet addiction is still very
strong, they still have the bad habit of long-term sitting and viewing, the result being that after a
half a year to a year of rebooting, the degree of recovery is still not optimal. And I have noticed,
long-term sitting produces a form of inertia. According to the saying of some people; it’s like a
pair of invisible hands forcefully pressing oneself against the chair, unable to stand up, unable to
stop oneself, before long several hours have passed. Therefore if we want to recover better, we
must deeply recognize the harm from long-term sitting:

1. Obesity: when the caloric intake exceeds the caloric exhaustion, fat will easily accumulate
inside the body, the bodily weight will increase. Obesity is a dangerous factor for causing
chronic illnesses.
2. Cervical spondylosis: when a person maintains a long-term sitting position, the entire weight
of the body is concentrated on the base of the spine. This combined with the immobility of
the shoulders and the neck easily leads to stiffness in the cervical spine. In more serious
cases the cervical spine becomes deformed and induces bone hyperplasia.
3. Lack of appetite, poor digestion, the whole bodily movement is lacking during long periods of
stillness sitting. This will induce weaker wiggle movement in the stomach and intestines,
reduced secretion of digestive fluids. In time the appetite will become lackluster, with the
appearance of poor digestion and even fullness symptoms.
4. Muscle shrinkage, long-term sitting may cause the internal oxy-carrying blood to decrease,
lowering of oxygen partial pressure, increase of the carbon-dioxide carrying blood volume,
increase in carbon dioxide partial pressure, causing soreness, stiffness and shrinkage in the
muscles.
5. Gynecologic diseases, many women catch cervicitis not due to poor hygiene habits but is
instead related to long-term sitting. Long-term sitting obstructs the generation of immune
cells which causes lower immunity. This combined with the obstruction in the blood flow
easily induces cervicitis and other related gynecologic diseases.
6. The lower of memory. Blood circulation slows down when one is sitting and not moving for
long periods of time, this induces inadequate blood supply to the brain, damages the spirit
as well as the brain, produces mental depression. This is expressed in the body and mental
fatigue, dispirited mind, chain-yawns. Long-term sitting in contemplation exhausts the blood
and injures the ying, this will induce a decrease in the memory and a lack of concentration.
7. Prostatitis: Investigation has shown that among patients with chronic prostatitis, office
workers, drivers, IT workers etc with special regards to drivers (long distance drivers) make
up the majority of the patients. In addition they do not recover easily, because people that
do this kind of work needs to sit for long periods of time without moving.
8. Varicocele: Research has shown that long-term sitting can cause varicocele with the
additional possibility of aggravating existing varicocele.
9. Injures the heart: sitting for long periods of time without moving places a lower demand on
the working capacity of the heart but may cause a decrease in its function, causing
shrinkage in the heart muscle, contributing to high blood pressure and giving the opportunity
to utilize the coronary thrombosis.
10. Injures the tendons: long-term sitting without movement will cause the muscles to lax,
impeded blood vessels and the clotting of blood. This will easily cause varicocele,
hemorrhoid and sit sore. Because of long-term sitting without movement, almost the entire
body weight is pressed against the buttock muscles, causing it to become “pressed to
death”, becoming damaged due to impeded blood flow.
11. Injured muscles: long-term sitting without movement and impeded blood flow causes the
muscles to become stiff, sore, ache, shrink, losing its vigor and elasticity and causing
spasms. Once, a person played cards for a whole night without moving, when he stood up

Page | 142
he fell towards the ground. It turned out that long period of sitting without movement causes
both legs to stiffen and become unresponsive.
12. Injuring bones: people that work for long stretches of time while sitting, due to the whole
weight of the body being pressed against the bottom of the spine, improper posture, long-
term immobility of the shoulders and the neck, these cause the top four vertebrae to stiffen.
It also causes the drying of the vertebrae and induces various spinal diseases, the most
commonly seen is hunched back and bone hyperplasia.
13. Injuring the brain: long-term sitting without moving causes inadequate blood supply to the
brains. It causes dizziness, blurry vision, the desire to vomit when one suddenly stands up.
14. Injuring the spirit: long-term sitting without moving will cause a depressed mind, it causes a
person to become listless, worn out, to chain-yawn. Sometimes it may cause weakened
heart and excessive internal heat with the appearance of a tooth-ache, throat ache, tinnitus
and constipation among other symptoms. In addition, long-term sitting will hinder the
generation of immune cells.
15. Injuring the kidneys: long-term sitting without moving will put pressure on the hips and the
bladder meridian, impeding the flow of qi and blood, obstructing the normal function of the
bladders. Since the kidney meridian and the bladder meridian are reflected off one another,
the kidney function will also become affected. This is the principle behind “long-term sitting
injures the kidneys”. And a deficiency in the kidney qi will slowly induce weakness into both
the blood and the qi; with the onset of itchy skin, pale or dark complexion, insomnia,
excessive dreams, irritable mood, constipation, a decrease in menstrual blood quantity etc.
These problems will be reflected on the face as colored stains. The appearance of colored
stains is the body trying to tell us: inside the body there are blockages of qi and blood, this is
what TCM refers to as qi stagnation.
16. Long-term sitting causes the volume (circumference) of all the blood veins to decrease, a
decrease in the heart function, exasperating the heart issues for the middle-aged and the
elderly, causing in advance arteriosclerosis, coronary heart disease and high blood pressure.
17. Long term sitting causes inadequate blood flow in the chest cavity, causing a further decline
in the function of the heart and the lungs, exasperating heart and lung-related disease such
as emphysema infection for the middle ages and the elderly, protracted illnesses etc.
18. Long-term sitting will also cause inadequate blood supply to the brains, reducing the oxygen
and nutrient supply to the brains, exasperating weariness for the body, insomnia, decrease
in memory and increasing the chances of catching dementia.
19. Long-term sitting without movement will induce soreness in all muscles of the body, stiffness
in the neck, headache and dizziness, exasperating lumbar and neck vertebrae illnesses.
20. Long term sitting will easily induce slower stomach movement, decreased secretion of
digestive fluids, decreased appetite, exasperating belly bloating, constipation, indigestion
and issues with the digestive system.
21. Long-term sitting may cause the venous plexus around the rectum to become congested in
the long term, increasing the degree of clotted blood and thereafter exasperate the
hemorrhoids, causing blood in the stool, anal cracks etc.
22. Because that many middle-aged to elderly people often remain in a static state where one is
not fond of talking, long-term sitting will speed up the decline of their speech function, as
well as causing the reactionary speed of the brain to slow down, this is consistent with the
“use and disuse” theory.
23. Long-term sitting will also induce psychological depression, unprovoked bursts of anger, a
poor state of mind, show decreased interest to the outside world or showing no interest
altogether.
24. Long-term sitting easily incurs kidney stones, gallstones and similar problems.

Page | 143
I have extracted and summarized these 24 points. Basically all the harm from long-term sitting is
contained herein, there is a statement: long-term sitting may kill! This statement is not meant to
scare people, this boiling the frog way of killing people is without shape and form, unbeknownst
to you your health has been weakened. Furthermore, some people are quite clueless and are
not aware of where the problem is coming from. Reports from the World Health Organization
has found, each year there are over 2 million people whose death is related to long-term sitting.
Long-term sitting will give rise to illnesses, it will bring one closer to the God of death, is this true?
It is, this is absolutely right! However, more and more people are sitting down and for longer
durations. Some people have been observing, office workers sit on average for at least 5 hours
each day, the duration for continuous sitting is over 2 hours on average, in addition we should
not forget about those who work with IT and driving.

Some brother would ask, I cannot help my working schedule which requires sitting every day,
what can I do? My answer is, every 40 minutes get up a move a bit, set a computer alarm.
There is dedicated alarm software online that are available for download, everyone may go and
download one, it will remind you to move around when it is time. In addition, I can reveal my
own methods. At home I surf the internet while standing up, I just put a chair on the table and in
this way I avoid sitting for long durations at a time. However, there would appear a new problem
and that is standing for long durations. TCM: long-term standing injures the bones. Therefore, I
would normally stand for a while and then sit down for a while. I found this method quite much
suits me. Everyone who is interested may give this a try.

Other brothers would ask, does meditation count as long-term sitting? Meditation is a state of
practice, there are indeed masters who are able to enter a meditative state for few hours or
even for half a day, even for a few days. Because it is a special state of practice, normally it is
harmless. I would recommend meditating for 1 hour each day, you may also set up a plan
according to your own circumstances, if you have reached that particular statement, entering
the meditative state for few hours at a time will not be a problem. Naturally I have also seen an
article that dealt with harmful effects from meditating for long durations. In that article, it is said
that sitting for long durations in the double lotus position will easily give rise to foot and leg
problems during old age. The person who wrote that article was a person who was famous in
the Daoist circles, he has profound experiences, everybody may give consideration to his
advice. Nowadays I mainly rely on loose sitting or single lotus as meditation posture.

There is no way to over-exaggerate the problem of sitting for long durations, I hope that
everyone may deeply recognize this problem. While rebooting, I recommend to exercise actively,
but pay attention to the intensity, more is not always better. Practice has proven: those who
often perform aerobic exercises recover relatively more quickly and more optimally.

In the below, we will deal with the topic of underestimating the enemy.

Threads about underestimating the enemy appear from time to time on the rebooting forums, an
example of the argument would be: rebooting is very easy, rebooting is very easy. The brothers
who normally make such a thread are all in the desire-hibernation period. Those who have read
season 4 will know after the desire-hibernation period is the high season for relapses. Many
brothers during the desire-hibernation period are able to control their addictions, the desire is
not strong and sexual fantizations are few. For some people, the hibernation period only lasts
for a few days, for others, it lasts for a month or so. During such a period, many people

Page | 144
harbor an attitude of underestimating the enemy, they feel that rebooting is not hard at all, that
they are rebooting just fine, their threads reflect this attitude.

If everyone is observant, they will for sure notice that not long after the thread was made the
contents have changed to something like: I was too confident, I have relapsed. I was too
careless, I have relapsed. The underestimating attitude from the beginning has turned into post-
relapse regret. The saying that the arrogant army will surely face defeat. Chairman Mao has
once said: underestimate the enemy in strategy, pay attention to the enemy in tactics. We may
underestimate our temptation demon when it comes to strategy, but when it comes to tactics we
may emphasize the enemy. If rebooting was that easy, why do so many people repeatedly
relapse? Moreover, many people are postgraduate students, they all have high IQ. To
paraphrase a TV dialogue: You underestimate rebooting! To be successful at rebooting one
must systematically study rebooting knowledge in a professional way, constantly increase
rebooting awareness and realization, only in this way is thorough reboot made possible.

Let’s talk about the foamy urine issue.

Many brothers have asked about and experienced the issue of foamy urine. The formation of
foam in the urine is mainly related to the surface tension of the urine. Normally speaking, the
higher the surface tension in a liquid, the easier it is for foams to form. Under different
circumstances, changes in the composition of the urine such as protein, mucus, organic
material will cause an increase in the surface tension of the urine, foams will then form easily. Is
lots of foam in the urine a sign of disease? This requires analysis into different situations.

As to the phenomenon of foamy urine, we will need to analyze if the reason is due to
physiological or pathological reasons.

If the reason belongs to the below conditions, then the increase of foam in the urine is not due
to diseases.

1. There are semen substances in the urinary tract: when semen substances are present in the
urinary tract for men, this may cause foam in the urine. Retrograde ejaculation (often seen
among diabetes and autonomic nervous system disorder patients). Frequent arousal will
increase the mucus production in the glands of the urinary tract. Following emission etc.
2. Over-rapid urination: during rapid urination, the urine forcefully comes into contact with the
surface of the water, air and urine are intermixed, foams will form easily but will disperse
easily. In addition, by standing at a position that is too high, under the influence of gravity,
the force of impact from the urine onto the surface of the water will be relatively high, foams
will easily form.
3. Concentrated urine: under the circumstances of decreased fluid intake, profuse sweating,
diarrhea, the inadequate water content of the human body will cause the urine to become
concentrated, causing the protein and other contents to increase within the urine. This will
easily cause the urinary foam to increase.
4. Other causes: disinfectant and detergents within the urinal is another reason which would
cause the formation of foam in the urine.

When foam appears in the urine from time to time, this often has physiological cause and the
cause will be found in most cases, such as over-rapid urination, concentrated urine etc. If foamy
urine disappears by getting rid of the above causes, and in the absence of abnormal symptoms
or illnesses, then there is no need to become too worried.

Page | 145
The below circumstances should give rise to alert:

1. Proteinuria: the abnormal increase of protein content in the urine is one of the most common
causes for foamy urine. It is also a clinical expression for various diseases and especially
when it comes to kidney diseases. Various primary kidney illnesses, such as glomerulus,
kidney inflammation etc and various kinds of secondary kidney damage, such as diabetes,
high blood pressure, gout, hepatitis etc will all cause kidney damage and increased protein
in the urine. Although the kidney function is normal under the cases of multiple myeloma,
acute hemolysis, leukemia etc, due to the emergence of a large amount of abnormal protein
in the blood, protein will also leak into the urine and lead to proteinuria. Foamy urine will
normally occur during proteinuria, the special characteristics for the foamy urine is a layer of
floating foam that are miniscule in size and would not disperse after a long time.
2. Urinary system infection: Infection in the urinary system may cause increased foam in the
urine. Commonly seen cases are urinary tract infection, cystitis, prostatitis etc. In the
majority of cases, there are accompanying symptoms such as frequent urination, the
urgency to urinate, pain during urination etc.
3. Increase in urine sugar: The presence of organic substances (glucose) and inorganic
substance (various mineral salts etc) may cause increased tension for the urinary fluid and
hence the appearance of foam, but the foams in this case are rather big and disappear
quickly. Due to an increase in urinary sugar for diabetes patients, secondary urinary sugar
increases, foam urine will likely occur.

I have encountered foamy urine myself, normally the foam would not go away after a long time,
one then considers the possibility of internal inflammation such as prostatitis. Naturally, if the
intake of protein is excessive, the foamy urine situation would also appear. If foamy urine
occasionally appears then there is no need to worry. If the issue is persistent or occurs often,
then it’s best to do a checkup at the hospital.

Afterword:

Frequent emission is indeed a watched topic among brothers during the rebooting phase,
everybody wants to minimize its frequency. I was once like everybody else, I have searched for
countless methods to prevent emission. Throughout my personal experiences, I finally chose
the kidney strengthening exercise from the Eight Brocade Qigong. The above-mentioned
exercise is supported by TCM theories in addition to having undergone many peoples’
experiences, its reliability is quite high. Kidney strengthening exercise is not only effective
against emissions, it is similarly effective against seminal leakages. I have introduced the kidney
strengthening exercise in season 3, there have been many feedbacks from brothers and many
people have indeed managed to decrease their number of emissions, keeping the number
within once per month. This frequency is advantageous to the recovery process. Naturally, there
are many brothers who have tried the exercise with unchanged results. One aspect to consider
is not to perform the movement properly, another is the failure to avoid the other factors which
give rise to emissions. If those other emission inducing factors are not avoided, then even if one
has been doing the kidney strengthening exercises, one might still encounter emissions. For
instance, if a brother has done the kidney strengthening exercise but over-exercises and
becomes fatigued, then during the night he will still have a emission. Some brothers cannot
keep sexual fantizations under control, the issue of emissions still cannot be resolved.

Page | 146
Recently on the forums, many brothers have shared ways of reducing the frequency of
emissions, with regards to these ways we may give them a try. But please remember, do not put
all hope into one method, because if you are not careful in avoiding other factors which induce
emissions, emissions will still take place. I have specifically written a season on these other
emissions inducing factors, everyone may take a look for reference.

Season 28 [Soaring Eagle experience: withdrawal reactions, curved
penis issue, semen changing color]

I have mentioned withdrawal reactions in my previous article. Lately, many newcomers have
come to ask about withdrawal reactions. I get an absent-minded kind of feeling, a feeling of time
and space dislocation. The rebooting forums have already experienced turnover, newcomers
are constantly entering, the questions they ask have all been asked by the seniors. Previous
rookies have turned into rebooting veterans, the situation has already emerged where the old
are helping the new. We will thoroughly talk about withdrawal reactions in this season in order to
eliminate any concerns from the newcomers, solidify their rebooting determination, I think this is
necessary.

While rebooting, the first psychological threshold that one must pass through is the one about
harmlessness theories. On the physical level, the first level that one must pass through is
withdrawal reactions. The majority of the brothers will encounter withdrawal symptoms within a
month of rebooting. Before rebooting the symptoms are not apparent, instead the symptoms
show up during the reboot. Many people panic when the symptoms first appear, they
immediately think about harm from self-restraint, they immediately think about the adverse
effects that self-restraint has on prostatitis, the result is falling back into the trap of masturbation.
This is withdrawal symptom in reality. Normally by persisting in rebooting, withdrawal symptoms
will gradually diminish and even disappear. If rookies are not aware of and do not understand
withdrawal symptoms, then they might harbor thoughts about quitting. Because he is nervous
and afraid, indeed, it is an unpleasant feeling to be entangled by withdrawal symptoms. But as
long as one is persistent, withdrawal symptoms will come to pass. When withdrawal symptoms
appear, pay attention to cultivation, don’t overstrain, one may perform some moderate exercises.
Normally the recovery of the body will improve ever more once withdrawal symptoms have
passed, the condition being of course that you have learned how to cultivate the health, to
actively exercise. In this way there is a guarantee for making a recovery. Don’t always sit down,
otherwise the speed of recovery will be very slow.

I have researched into many addictive behaviors. Normally after cutting out an addictive
behavior, some symptoms are bound to appear. Withdrawal symptoms are relatively common in
the world of addictions.

Take quitting smoking addiction for instance: smokers after having forcefully quit smoking are
likely to encounter restlessness, impatience, chest tightness, coughs, short-term forgetfulness,
lack of vitality, fat gain, shivers, insomnia, increase in appetite, coughing black-greyish phlegm,
higher blood pressure in addition to arrhythmia etc withdrawal symptoms resulting in great
suffering. But these kinds of symptoms in the majority of cases will gradually diminish as the
body recovers.

Take cutting out alcohol addiction as another example: after cutting out alcohol the
psychological symptoms are expressed as anxiety, depression, irritability. Heavy users
experience hallucinations, illusions, delusions, obstacles in awareness etc. Symptoms of the
nervous system are expressed as palpitations, chest tightness, profuse sweating etc and
autonomous nervous system symptoms. Heavy users may encounter tremors, twitches, an
eruption of epilepsy etc. Stomach symptoms are expressed as nausea, vomiting, stomach pain
and diarrhea etc.

Page | 148
Withdrawal symptom is a form of adaptive rebound, normally by persisting in rebooting,
symptoms will gradually disappear. Normally the symptoms during rebooting are expressed as:

1. Mood obstacle: poor mood, easily agitated and angered, decadent and pessimistic, loss of
interest.
2. Sleeping obstacle: many brothers report having sleeping problems during rebooting.
Problems such as difficulty in falling asleep, insomnia, excessive dreams are relatively
common.
3. Bodily symptom: illnesses with urinary systems are commonly seen, such as aggravation of
prostatitis.

Other brothers may encounter soreness and pain in the waist, lack of energy, discomfort feeling
over the entire body, disappearance of morning erection, increased hair loss, changes in semen
etc.

Do not panic or be afraid when encountering withdrawal symptoms. Reboot well, emphasize
cultivation and the symptoms will quickly pass. This is a threshold, everybody needs to go
through it.

Let’s talk about the issue of a curved penis in the below.

I have chatted with over a thousand brothers, not many of them report having a curved penis,
but once in a while a few people would show up. Indeed this problem cannot be underestimated
as it will affect a person’s self-esteem. Let’s first take a look at 2 cases:

Case 1: male, 25 years old, unmarried, no sex life, penis curved to the left, the angle of the
bend is considerable since a few years back, due to the embarrassment he is never made a
visit the hospital for treatment.

Case 2: Soaring Eagle, my penis bend to the left at about 20 degrees, the urination stream
leans towards the left a bit because of masturbating with the right hand in the past, what can be
done about it?

Among the brothers that I have come across, some have their penises bending towards the left,
some towards the right, some even have an angle of bend of 45 degrees towards the right.
There is an article from abroad about rebooting which talked about that masturbation would
induce the penis to bend towards the right, but one needs to also look into the specific case.
Many people have the vile habit of masturbation and yet they do not run into this issue. I think
masturbation is one of the causes, the appearance of a bending penis should be due to a
combination of factors. For example, if you masturbate during development and it is directed
towards the left or towards the right, or by applying pressure on one side while rubbing, while
the penis is under development this will very much likely influence the direction of its growth.
Just like a small tree, by bending it when it’s still small, what will the result be? It will grow along
the bend, once big it will still be bent. Yet big trees do not have this problem, because their
orientation of growth has basically matured.

How to treat this problem once it has arisen will depend on whether or not it affects your self-
esteem, in addition, how it will affect your future sex life. If it is affected the doctor would
normally recommend a correcting procedure. Therefore for those brothers who suffer from this
kind of issue, they should seek immediate treatment and listen to the professional advice of the

Page | 149
doctor. At the same time, do not masturbate anymore, make effort in cultivating the health, too
many symptoms are caused by masturbation. When symptoms appear it is actually a bit late.
TCM advocates curing yet-to-be illnesses, we should work on prevention before it happens!

Lastly, let’s talk about semen color.

Normally after kidney qi has been damaged by masturbation, changes will take place in the
semen. Extremely many people report changes in their semen, everybody should have
encountered this problem. Normally the below situations will appear:

1. Change in color, turning very yellow or greenish yellow.


2. Non-liquidation of semen, the appearance of crystal or jello substance.
3. Bloody semen, this is caused by many factors, common reasons are inflammation and stone.
4. Semen becomes thin and less, decrease in stickiness.
5. Seminal discharge becomes greater and more concentrated, this is also a state of illness,
pointing to the presence of inflammation.
6. Decrease in the quality of the sperm (no sperm, dead sperm, low vigor, deformity etc)

Among the articles that I have read, there was 2 sayings regarding the normal color of semen: 1.
Milky white or light yellow; 2. Greyish white or light yellow. If strictly speaking, milky white is not
normal, it points to the possibility of inflammation. From looking at everybody’s question, the
appearance of crystal and jello substance are relatively common. Next common is the yellowing
of semen, if it is light yellow then it is normal if it is very yellow or a greenish yellow then
attention is required. Some brothers will encounter bloody semen with the semen having red or
pink in it. If bloody semen appears it is recommended to immediately seek to diagnose and
treatment at the hospital.

When first starting to reboot, changes will easily take place in the semen, this can be seen as a
withdrawal reaction. Following persistent rebooting and cultivation, the quality of the semen will
slowly improve. Moreover if health cultivation is not emphasized then changes will easily take
place in the semen, such as heavy drinking, smoking, long-term sitting, staying up late at night,
exposure to AC etc. Maintaining excellent lifestyle habits is very important, it has a direct impact
on the health.

In TCM theories it is mentioned: “Sowing the seed, the man must first cultivate the sperm”. If
one wants outstanding offsprings, the man should take good care of the body, cut out whatever
is needed to be cut out, cultivate the quality of the sperm, by doing this will the offspring become
quite healthy. Many brothers have had their sperm checked, some brothers have encountered
weak spermatosis, there were also cases of azoospermia, other cases include a lack of vitality
in the sperm, dead sperm and quite a few cases of deformed sperm. Normally the main reasons
for a lacking quality of the sperm are prostatitis and varicocele, while masturbation is able to
induce these two illnesses, the quality of the sperm will then become affected. Many people are
addicted to masturbation, it has resulted in vastly lower sperm quality. Some have encountered
infertility, although some are still fertile, if they continue to masturbate they might unfortunately
end up becoming infertile. Therefore there are a hundred advantages in cutting out
masturbation and not a single harm. By not cutting out masturbation there are a hundred of
harms and not a single benefit. If we really try to find benefits in masturbation, masturbation
allows you to release emotions and pressure which allows you to relax. But the consequence is
to sink into the vicious cycle, the loss outweighs the benefits.

Page | 150
I hope that everybody is able to persist in rebooting and health cultivation, nurture the quality of
the sperm, preserve the best of you for marriage. Do not at all cost discard yourself before
marriage. Sperm is the seed, with a good seed will your offsprings be healthy. If the seed is not
good, your offspring may suffer from a poor constitution with the appearance of many illnesses
and even the chance of premature death.

Afterword:

While replying to a thread, I saw a brother mentioning: the marriage between man and woman
is the necessary relationship between the sexes. Male and female cannot thrive alone, it’s the
way of the nature that they are compatible with one another, this cannot easily be discarded.
This brother has cited ancient marriage cultivation theory, there is a certain truth to it. But if one
does not have ample experience and lacks own thinking and understanding, one might think
why practice self-restraint? Wasn’t it mentioned that male and female cannot thrive alone?
Would self-restraint lead to shortened life? By staying away from women and thus not mixing
the sexes, wouldn’t the male stop thrive? If I lacked ample experience this is what I would also
think. But I have do thoroughly understand TCM theories and have come to realize that the
above quote is not absolute, there are pre-conditions involved.

In TCM it has been mentioned: lack of essence leads to disease. It has also been mentioned:
the overuse of kidney essence leads to disease, if kidney essence can be preserved, the penis
will be firm! After seeing the above sentence everybody may wonder, doesn’t this contradict
“male cannot thrive alone”? I will make an example so that everybody may understand. Master
Empty Cloud has never touched a woman during his entire life, he lived to be 120 years old. Not
a few Buddhist practitioners have lived to be beyond 100 years old. If the saying goes “Male
cannot thrive alone”, then if monks do not touch women, how can they live to be over 100 years
old? In Taoist cultivation, total self-restraint was also mentioned, since ancient times not a single
Taoist immortal has leaked essence. Bai Yuchan has said: not a single drop of semen is leaked,
this is the ladder towards the heavens.

Therefore, “Man cannot thrive alone” is not the absolute truth, it does not suit the monk, for the
ordinary man it is quite suitable. This is because the heart cultivation is not yet in its proper
place for the ordinary man, there is sexual fantization as everybody knows, it is not good to hold
in fantization. Sexual fantization is an invisible form of leakage in itself, many brothers have
encountered repeated symptoms following sexual fantization. Monks have properly cultivated
their hearts and so do not have this problem.

However, the ordinary man should not go and have sex as soon as the idea pops up, he should
look at his own bodily condition. If the body is weak and is wrapped in symptoms, self-restraint
is needed in order to cultivate the body. Once the kidney qi has been cultivated into abundance
and the health is totally recovered is he able to live out a controlled sex-life. Many famous
physicians during ancient times have required patients to keep away from bedroom affairs, or
else the body will have a hard time recovery and the efficacy of the medicine will also suffer.
Nowadays many Chinese traditional physicians no longer mention these things, it is very
regrettable.

Season 29 [Soaring Eagle experience: rebooting condition adjustment,
obstacles in development, emission due to nervousness]

Foreword:

Recently when browsing the forums I saw that many brothers have relapsed, the reason being
that they couldn’t get past sexual fantization. To be successful in rebooting, sexual fantization
must be conquered. Put in another way, if you are able to put a stop to sexual fantizations, then
you are halfway there, your record rebooting streak will take a big leap forward! If you are not
able to conquer sexual fantizations then what awaits you is repeated failure. It is not scary to fail,
what’s scary is to not learn. Only through constant studying in raising the awareness, to
ceaselessly summarizing lessons are we able to improve our rebooting efforts. Do not be
discouraged after a failure, we need to look at our own progress. In raising the awareness there
is a process, once your awareness has been cultivated then rebooting will come naturally,
hence the saying: when conditions are right, success naturally follows!

Time is of the essence when cutting out sexual fantizations, it is important to first become aware.

Some brothers have asked me, what to do when the flames of desire are burning? Will do push-
ups help in suppressing the desires? My answer is this, you are too late in stopping the
fantization, at the beginning the thought is like a tiny spark, it is easy to put a stop to it. Once the
spark has turned into a prairie fire, a flame of desire, it is too difficult to put it out if you wanted to.
When you notice the fire after it has been greatly developed and you want to put it out, then it is
very possible to have the opposite effect, the more you suppress it the stronger it grows and
bounces back. The new thought need not be feared, late awareness is to be feared. One needs
to become aware of the new thought of sexual fantasy during the first 0.01 seconds, end it
immediately, do not hesitate, do not compromise, be decisive, be direct and efficient! End it
early! End it firmly! End it quickly! If you don’t vanquish the temptation demon the demon will
vanquish you, there is no third option, if vanquished by the demon then symptoms abuse awaits!

With regards to sexual fantizations, my article in season 17 have described it in detail,


everybody may look over it again. Among my articles, season 17 is an important one because it
deals with how to cut out sexual fantization. By passing through the barrier of sexual fantization
will rebooting become more steady by the day. Otherwise even if one has been rebooting for a
long time, failure still remains, one is still unable to vanquish the temptation demon.

An illustration from my previous season have shown, rebooting is like playing chess, the person
sitting in front of you is the temptation demon. This is the same as real life chess; when you first
play against an expert, there is only room for defeat, no matter what you do you will be defeated.
This is because the opponent is an expert and has abundant actual combat experience. While
you are a rookie that is ignorant about everything in addition to harboring

many misconceptions, under this circumstance, how can one defeat the temptation demon? The
temptation demon is at a higher level than you while you are only a rookie. In reality, there is
only one way to defeat the temptation demon and that is to ceaselessly study to raise the level
of awareness. Once your awareness has been cultivated, your level raised, and you battle the
demon once more, then you will notice that the temptation demon is no longer a match, you are
able to vanquish and defeat the demon. To be able to successfully reboot is a process of

Page | 152
constantly raising your awareness. Once you have the awareness to study and have formed
excellent studying habits, you are not far off from successfully rebooting.

There is another issue and that is while the penis is erect, out flows some transparent liquid,
what is this? Among the articles that I have researched into, there are 2 sayings; the first is
pleiotropic fluid, the other the fluid secretion by the urethral glands with a lubricating property,
some brothers call them lubrication. Urethral gland fluid is transparent and sticky, it may be
elongated into thin threads, it has the property of lubricating the urinary tract and constitutes the
first substance in ejaculated semen as well as being part of the seminal fluid. And pleiotropic
fluid is an important part of the seminal fluid. Therefore no matter which of the two liquids is
flowing out, they will actually both cause harm to the body. Many brothers run into symptoms
after fantasizing without masturbation, sexual fantization is an invisible form of leakage, TCM
has mentioned: when the mind wanders, essence leaves. Among the TCM medical cases that I
have gone through, there have been records of sexual fantization leading to illnesses, sexual
fantization is able to induce illnesses, this is very true! To find out the effects from gazing
without masturbating, you can take a look in the mirror and you will notice that your complexion
has been decreased, there is a good chance to encounter pain in the testis, swollen feeling in
the lower abdomens or frequent urination. These are the consequences of invisible leakages
from sexual fantization, it is the conclusion from many brothers. Everybody needs to persevere
in putting a stop to sexual fantization and achieve total reboot!

In the below we will enter into the main topic.

In this season we will describe in detail the adjustment of the rebooting condition, development
obstacles, and emission to due to nervousness, specifically:

Lately there are many brothers who have been reporting having poor rebooting conditions, such
as the emergence of weariness, laziness, low in moods, loss of movement and related
phenomena.

I have also encountered these kinds of conditions, the emergence of this type of behavior is
intricately connected to the season of the year, “spring weary, autumn tired, summer doze off,
winter unable to wake up”. The changing of the seasons deeply affects a person’s psychology
and physiology. It is not difficult to understand that we get tired during the day in the summer
when the weather is sizzling hot, not allowing a good rest in the evening. But why do we still
experience tiredness during the clear and refreshing autumn weather? This is because during
the sizzling hot summer, the human body sweats profusely causing an imbalance in the water
and salt metabolism, weakening function in the intestines, places a heavier burden on the
cardiovascular system, the human body is placed into a state of over-depletion. Following the
end of the summer and the coming of autumn, the climate turns from sizzling hot to be cool and
pleasant, bodily sweating noticeably decreases, the human body enters a resting phase of a
cyclical nature. The salt and water metabolism starts to recover towards balance, the burden on
the human cardiovascular system also finds a relief, digestive system also improves by the day.
Yet during this time there is an unexplainable feeling of weariness in the body, this is what is
often referred to us “autumn tiredness”. In reality, this is the natural human physiological
response towards the different seasons. After a period of adjustment, the weariness will also
naturally disappear.

Therefore, if you are recently in a poor rebooting state, the advice is to emphasize cultivation,
don’t over-strain yourself, emphasize mood management, slowly it will pass, the good rebooting

Page | 153
state will return. One must learn to adjust oneself, this is especially important. The rebooting
state of a person goes up and down, this is very similar to the up and down of an athlete's
condition. Merritt is now clocked at 12.8 seconds, could he make the same time again next time?
Maybe the condition will have fallen back. Rebooting works in the same way, in the beginning
many brothers gain a tremendous amount of determination after having read a few rebooting
articles, their determination runs high. But after a dozen days, the enthusiasm is lost, the
motivation nowhere to be found. When reading articles one binge reads, when not reading one
has not read an article in weeks, there is no persistence in raising the awareness in this way.
Like climbing a mountain where one gives up halfway. Therefore in order to be successful in our
rebooting efforts, one must keep up a stable rebooting condition. When first starting out our
enthusiasm is running high, we can take in a higher number of articles, when the enthusiasm
has waned we should not stop reading altogether but to decrease the number of articles. Read
some rebooting articles on schedule every day just like brushing the teeth, form the habit and
the habit will become natural. Given a stable rebooting condition, the steady raising of the
awareness can be guaranteed. Just like playing a video game; one doesn’t simply play one day
and then rest for a dozen days, but rather one plays every day in order to level up quickly. Of
course I’m not in favor of being addicted to internet gaming, I only use it as an example.

Main factors that induce a change in the rebooting condition can be found below:

1. Rebooting fed up period (the season 26 article specifically mentions this).


2. Seasonal factors (the turning of the season may affect the psychology and physiology of a
person and from there influence the rebooting condition, this is easily neglected).
3. Having read harmlessness theories (swaying easily forms after reading harmlessness
theories, this is followed by doubt and the thought to quit arises).
4. Planning when doing things (brothers who plan will be able to reboot more steadily, he will
know the number of planned studies for each day).
5. Trivia in life (if there are many trivialities then they will easily cause a distraction, or if the
mind becomes weary then one no longer wants to read articles).
6. Pressure from work and studies (when under big pressure a person’s emotions will easily
become disorderly and from there affect the rebooting condition).
7. Have wife or girlfriend (The rebooting condition for these brothers is very difficult to stabilize,
specifically why that is everybody should know without I have to mention it).
8. Environmental pollution (For example somebody watching porn in the bedroom, or due to
confirmation to social niceties one needs to visit such places, these will all affect the
rebooting condition).
9. Following emission (There are many cases of relapses following emissions, it is easy for the
mind to waver following emissions, one needs to maintain vigilance).
10. Dietary factors (The emergence of wild fantasies is made easier by overconsumption in
meat and medicines, the rebooting condition will then become affected).

If we want to be successful in rebooting, we must keep our rebooting condition steady. Just like
walking on a tightrope, we need to maintain stable, find the point of balance, there will then be
stability and longevity in rebooting.

Below let’s talk about obstacles in development.

Among the thousands of cases I have gathered from sufferers and the thousand of brothers I
have chatted with, many have reported development obstacles, these are mainly concentrated
in the below points:

Page | 154
1. Penis development obstacles.
2. Height growth development obstacles.
3. Appearance development obstacles (looking much younger).

I believe that everybody can easily comprehend the first 2 points. On the third point, surely
people will ask, isn’t looking younger a good thing? Actually looking younger isn’t necessarily a
good thing, many brothers are fretting over this, when looking younger than one’s peers people
may not take one seriously. Furthermore, a person in his 20s who looks like a high school or
middle school student will encounter difficulty in finding a job in the future, the employer will
think that one is not mature enough and not up to the task. When looking younger is mentioned
here, it is not looking 1-2 younger but 5+ years. After one has started to masturbate, one’s
appearance will take on one of two inclinations, the first is to have aged in an obvious way, the
other is delayed development with a young looking appearance. Both outcomes will cause
distress while turning older and uglier following masturbation is the more common outcome.

Development obstacles with the penis are relatively commonly seen. The penis is linked to the
liver while masturbation hurts the liver and the kidneys, this will affect the development of the
penis. Some people have a naturally weak constitution, if they are wildly addicted to
masturbation the result will be that the development of the penis will be affected; the
phenomenon of smallness and shortness will then emerge, making them feeling self-inferior.
Many brothers are under 10 cm, some are even under 8 cm, some are too skinny which is also
a very troublesome issue. At the onset of development obstacles with the penis, one should
immediately cut out masturbation, pay attention to health cultivation, things will alleviate this way,
at the very least the quality of the erection will improve.

I have specifically talked about height growth obstacles in season 8, those brothers who are
worried about height may have a look. Many factors influence height growth, masturbation is
among one of them, being addicted to masturbation have the possibility of affecting bone growth,
because according to TCM: kidneys govern the bones. Being addicted to the evil habit of
masturbation will induce obstacles to the growth of the bones which will then affect height. But
not all people who masturbate will have their height affected, this is because many factors play
a role in height, masturbation being one of them. If the other factors are properly managed, such
as eating well, exercising properly, sleeping early, excellent genes, one may still reach the
optimal height under these circumstances. But what is sure is that masturbation will affect bone
density. Masturbation will induce soft legs, during intense exercises, broken bones or bone
fractures will easily occur.

Masturbation indeed affects development. But everybody has a different constitution. Different
dietary, exercise and living habits after birth led to the difference in how the body is affected.
Some people love to exercise, have a lack of bad habits, sleeps and eats properly with proper
nutrition, although he masturbates the impact on the body is relatively mild. While some people
have a naturally poor constitution, this combined with long-term sittings and staying up during
the night, lack of exercise, poor diet, serious development obstacles may arise under such
circumstance. Therefore for the guys that are still undergoing development, they need to realize
the danger from masturbation as soon as possible in order to avoid tearless sorrow in the future.
After the development phase is over things becomes fixed, many things will then be hard to alter.

Page | 155
Lastly, let’s talk about emission due to nervousness.

Emission due to nervousness is quite commonly seen, brothers with this type of problem will
often appear.

I know that nervousness will induce emissions. During middle school I remember taking a
midterm exam, a student had an emission during the exam because he still had unanswered
questions, but the time was already up, he became nervous and had an emission. At the time
this event was talked among the students as an odd story, people thought this was unbelievable.
Now that I have done research into masturbation behavior, I have come to realize that emission
due to nervousness actually occurs a lot.

Everybody may first take a look at a few cases:

1. Big brother Soaring Eagle! I would like to inquire: during the night I did not have an erotic
dream but the dream was about an unfinished exam, as soon as I started to worry I couldn’t
hold it back and had an emission. Does this count as a nocturnal emission or semen
slippage?

2. Brother Soaring Eagle, I’m a 4th-grade university student and I’m about to take the National
Judicial Exam. These past months have been extremely tormenting, I have started to reboot
since the beginning of the year until now, there have been many relapses. Due to
nervousness before the exam, I have had nocturnal emissions 4 days in a row including last
night. I have lost hope for the future, please help me! If I continue to leak my whole being is
done for!

3. Brother Soaring Eagle, I had nocturnal emission last night, I wasn’t able to hold out for 100
days, after my emission I was very disheartened. The emission occurred during dreaming, I
dreamt about being selected by the teacher to sing, I didn’t know what to sing, became
nervous and had an emission which woke me up, it was only half past four. I was very
disheartened at the time, I no longer hold the same excitement as I previously had. I will still
continue to make effort, persist in doing kidney strengthening exercises and fight towards
the next 100 days.

The classmate from middle school that I have mentioned would have nervousness induced
emissions while being wide awake. Many brothers would have emissions while being nervous in
their dreams at night or during intense nervousness in the day. Thoughts fill the day, dreams fill
the night, nervousness induced emissions may also occur during the night. When these
situations occur, do not panic, one must learn to manage one’s emotions, give oneself plenty of
positive suggestions and don’t overthink. In addition, combined with persistent kidney
strengthening exercises and active treatment, these type of nervousness induced emissions can
be overcome. I remember there was a brother who would always have emissions due to
nightmares, this has always bothered him. Afterward I advised him to engage in active
treatment and persist in practicing kidney strengthening exercises, to manage the mood during
normal times, to maintain oneself in a state of tranquility. Subsequently he reported improved
emission rates compared to before.

Quite a few people became distracted once they become nervous, with thoughts in turmoil,
during this time you should tell yourself: breath deeply, keep calm, maintain serenity in the

Page | 156
mental state. Give oneself more suggestions of this nature, with time, nervousness will naturally
be overcome. Keeping calm is very important. If you are able to maintain calm and collected,
this will slowly affect the subconscious, when that time comes, the occurrence of nervousness
induced emission during dreams will slowly decrease and even disappear. This is a knot, you
must learn to untie it instead of becoming ever more nervous by it.

Afterword:

Many brothers have the mindset of turning negative emotions into masturbation. In other words,
whenever setbacks or worrying matters show up, one immediately finds an outlet through
masturbation. Brothers with such inclinations must learn to manage the mood and correct this
erroneous attitude of behavior. In the season about types of relapses, I have specifically talked
about relapse due to mood, this type of relapse is too common but the harm is really too great, it
will let you sink into the evil spiral. Properly managing one’s mood is a necessary factor towards
successful rebooting. Some brothers are scolded by their parents, they then experience great
emotional pressure, upon return to their rooms they relapse. Some brothers are scolded by their
boss, they lose control of their emotions and are not able to think clearly, they relapse upon
returning home. Some brothers relapse due to optimism, such as after the national high school
exam, once relaxed they relapse. Or in connection with celebrating success, after a successful
celebration, a person will be inclined to relax. Then there is the boredom mood, being alone at
home during the weekend, the temptation demon springs forth, relapse happens without one
being fully aware. Relapse due to the mood is too common, we must realize the importance of
properly managing our mood, manage our mood well in order to make ourselves reboot more
steadily.

Season 30 [Soaring Eagle experience: getting straight to the issue of
anxiety, neurosis, digging deep into neurosis]

Foreword:

In recent days I came upon a thread, a brother suffering from prostatitis mentioned that he had
abdominal pain and that the pain would go away every time he had an ejaculation. My advice is
to not place hopes in alleviating inflammation through ejaculation through masturbation.
Prostatitis should be promptly treated, the condition should be kept under control followed by
persistent health cultivation, this is the way to recover the health. Otherwise, by relying on
ejaculation via masturbation in order to alleviate inflammation, it will only cause you to sink into
an evil spiral, your body will collapse one step at a time, prostatitis will never be cured. In
treating prostatitis the guiding ideology must be correct, treating prostatitis mainly relies on
cultivation, after it comes treatment, 30% treatment and 70% cultivation. Treatment will keep the
state of the illness under control after that one will need to rely on health cultivation. If you lack
awareness in rebooting and health cultivation then there is a high chance for prostatitis to
relapse. The reason for the relapse rate of 90% for prostatitis is due to errors in the guiding
ideologies, thinking that medicines will be able to cure it. The truth is that the root issue of
prostatitis cannot be cured by relying on medicines. Prostatitis is cured through cultivation, one
must learn the way to cultivate the health and establish the awareness on rebooting and health
cultivation. In this way, prostatitis may slowly be cured, the normal recovery time for prostatitis
patients is around one year. If you take medicine while simultaneously engaging in masturbation,
no amount of spending will be able to cure the illness. Many brothers have been spending tens
of thousands on treatment, they have employed many different kinds of treatment procedures
and advanced equipment but to no avail. They have not understood rebooting and health
cultivation and so have spent their money in vain, their bodies still haven’t recovered. Doctors
will not be able to tell you why you are not healed, partly it is because they bear misconceptions
in their thinking and advocates the harmlessness theories. In the other part, some doctors do
not wish you to be healed as this will bring in extra revenue for the hospital. In many hospitals,
the doctors would receive kickbacks, do you think that he will tell you about the harmful effects
of masturbation? (Translator’s note: the phenomenon where doctors receive kickbacks for
medicines sold is a conflict of interest and unfortunately a common occurrence in China).

Furthermore, everybody is very concerned about the issue of morning erection. Actually, this
could also be explained by the secretion of testosterone. Normally around 5 am, the secretion of
testosterone reaches a climax, the morning erection phenomenon would then occur. During
puberty, the secretion of testosterone is especially abundant, morning erection could possibly
take place on a daily basis. I remember when I first entered puberty, for a period of time I indeed
had a morning erection every day. Afterward I became addicted to masturbation, the occurrence
of morning erection become considerably less frequent until it totally disappeared at a later date.
Of course, many factors have an influence on morning erection such as dietary factors, lots of
meat consumption, eating lots of kidney replenishing food, morning erections would easily
appear in such cases. There are also psychological factors, the mood is intricately connected
with the morning erection, this point is easily ignored by many people. The mood may influence
the secretion of testosterone and through it affect morning erection. For example you run into
unhappy circumstances in life, this pessimistic mood will then induce lower testosterone
secretion, morning erection could possibly disappear as a result. Mood and hormones affect
one another, many times a depressed mood is associated with imbalances in testosterone
secretion, hormones will in turn affect a person’s mood and behavior. For example a person
wakes up today and is in a very good mood, there is pleasure in the heart. But a dozen days

Page | 158
later the mood suddenly turns depressed, this actually is closely associated with the internal
secretion of hormones. A woman during menopause, along with the steadily declining function
of her ovaries, lower estrogen, this will result in changes in both her appearance and mood.
Apparent mood changes include sensitivity, doubt, irritation, being easily angered and other
negative moods. Males also have menopause, during menopause and along with lower
testosterone levels, the mood and the body will also encounter a series of changes. Thus the
saying that the mood and the hormones interacts and affects each other.

Another significant factor which affects the secretion of testosterone is exercise habits.
Moderate aerobic and strength exercises will promote testosterone secretion. Every morning
following doing barbell squats in the previous day I have had morning erection. Squats are able
to promote the secretion of testosterone, aerobic exercises may also raise the level of
testosterone secretion. But there is a condition and that is to not over-exercise. Over-exercising
will lead to lower testosterone regardless of whether it’s aerobic or strength exercise, all forms
of overexertion will induce lower testosterone secretion. Seasonal factors cannot be ignored
either. It is now autumn, the time of the year where testosterone secretion is at its highest, I feel
a much greater number of morning erections during this time.

If looking from a physiological point of view one could say that human nature is based on
hormones. The human body will secrete over 75 kinds of hormones, they all have their roles to
play in the human body. Women with a higher hormonal concentration in their bodies look much
younger than their counterparts with lower hormonal concentration. Males with abundant
testosterone secretion also have much higher initiative and aggression compared with ordinary
males.

Some brothers would say, will morning erections return after rebooting? He is addicted to
masturbation and has not had morning erections for a long time. My answer is that morning
erection will recover if there is persistence in rebooting and health cultivation. Previously I had
lost morning erection for a time, afterward it returned after I was persistent in rebooting and
health cultivation. Some other brothers would ask, will masturbation lead to an increase or a
decrease in the secretion of testosterone? Actually, it is very easy to answer this question. The
issue of imbalance caused by masturbation basically takes on two extremes. After some
brothers become addicted to masturbation, their testosterone secretion decreases, such as
myself, after I started to masturbate I noticed less beard. While some brothers experience more
proliferate growth of beard and body hair after they had started to masturbate. The reason to
why the two extremes exist is related to the individual constitution. TCM classifies people into 9
types of constitutions. The hormonal imbalance following masturbation will be determined by the
constitution of the individual. For some people, it is expressed as an increase in testosterone
secretion, on some people it is expressed as a decrease in testosterone secretion. An increase
in testosterone secretion is actually not a good thing, it would easily lead to the possibility of
male baldness. Among the cases that I have seen, it is more common to see a decrease in
testosterone secretion following masturbation, this takes up roughly 70% of the cases, the
remaining 30% is when testosterone secretion increases following masturbation.

As to the issue of morning erection, everybody need not place a strong demand on having a
morning erection every single day. With the increase in age, you will notice that morning
erection will steadily decrease. Morning erection is related to numerous factors, we need to
understand to let nature take its course and not to insist upon it. Nowadays I’m not concerned
about the frequency of morning erections but on its quality. A good quality morning erection
beats 100 poor quality ones. Persistent and firm morning erections are good erections, it can

Page | 159
also be taken as a sign of recovery for premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is not to be
tested casually, its recovery can be observed from the quality of morning erection. If you attempt
to test it then it is very possible to once again sink into the trap of masturbation. Although many
people experience morning erections, their quality is very lacking, lacking in firmness and in
duration with inadequate hardness and stamina. Moreover, the erection that many people
experience have a sexual fantization element in them and are not morning erections in its true
sense. Furthermore, morning erection while holding back urine is also not morning erection in its
true sense.

In the below we will enter the main topic, this season topic: getting straight to the issue of
anxiety, neurosis, digging deep into neurosis. The specifics can be found below.

Regarding neurosis

Neurosis, as it is known, might be foreign to many brothers, this is because many brothers have
not yet sustained such degree of damage, they have a difficult time understanding what it is like
to have neurosis. Those brothers who have yet to experience neurosis may gather a general
understanding from herein, broaden one’s scope of knowledge and alert themselves.

Neurosis is a dividing range for those who suffer from damaged essence. Once the nerves have
been damaged, recovery will be a relatively slow process. Mild neurosis is easier to recover
from, severe cases will require at least a year for any hopes of recovery. Awareness is required
in order to recover from this disease, complete recovery is extremely difficult by relying on
medicine alone. Many people have not understood properly, they have not figured the whys, just
like entering a maze and getting stuck in it for several years and even for over a decade, relying
on daily medications to sustain themselves, their quality of life taking too big of a hit. Many
especially severe cases will give rise to suicidal tendencies. In the media there is often news
about depression and neurosis patients committing suicide, some have both fame and money,
with assets amounting to the billions and still commits suicide. Ordinary people have a hard time
figuring out why people resort to suicide? Actually as soon as one has severe neurosis, many
people will have the thought of suicide. I have also had such thoughts about suicide, at the time
I lived in a symptom hell every day. Those who have not experienced it will indeed have a hard
time experiencing the feeling, it is a big devastation towards the body and the mind. Many
people after having neurosis experience big changes to their personalities, almost as if two
separate persons.

At the time I had separately encountered phobias (social phobia, AIDS phobia, cancer phobia),
hypochondria, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, neurasthenia, gastrointestinal neurosis,
cardiac neurosis, my head was also drowsy, had a headache along with wandering stinging
pain in the entire body. It simply pained from hell, torture, when lying on the bed I would always
feel an earthquake, later I found out that it was a feeling of severe body tremors. My muscles
also twitch randomly, I had almost collapsed at the time, not one spot in the body was
comfortable. Previously I had not believed in hell on earth, after having neurosis I believed in it.
Bodily symptom hell is indeed a great torment.

A huge emphasis is placed on experience when it comes to neurosis. If you lack the experience
you will have no ways to truly understand the feeling. This is like me trying to explain the feeling
of bungee to you, you will only hear me describe but have not tried it yourself, your experience
and feeling will not be profound in this way, neither will it be intuitive. Many doctors have not had
neurosis, their understanding of neurosis comes from textbooks. I can conscientiously say that

Page | 160
many theories found in the textbooks are not complete enough, Western medicine in particular
is still in the research stage in this area. Therefore many people will have inadequate
understanding towards neurosis, this includes many doctors. An undeniable fact is that there
are many quacks, doctors who truly understand are extremely few in number. Being able to
stumble upon one such doctor after having seeing dozen of them can be counted towards your
good fortune. It is common for neurosis patients to be misdiagnosed. Some patients feel
discomfort in their heart, they are getting treated for having heart disease and not for having
neurosis. After having undergone treatment for the better half of the year and having spent tens
of thousands in treatment costs, the illness remains without too much of a change, at last they
realize that they have neurosis while all previously they have been misdiagnosed with heart
disease. Therefore, neurosis patients have a thing or two to say about doctors. With regards to
neurosis, my recommendation is to go to see a traditional Chinese doctor. There are too many
effects in Western medicine and they easily cause dependency. Many patients become reliant
on medicines and become addicted to them, they do not feel at ease when not taking the
medicines. In reality, they don’t feel much better after taking the medicine, they are struggling
bitterly in a vicious cycle.

The common illnesses induced by neurosis:


1. Chronic pharyngitis, oral ulcer.
2. Irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, chronic gastritis.
3. Neurological headache, dizziness, insomnia, excessive dreams.
4. Depression, anxiety, fear, compulsion, hypochondria.
5. Excessive sweating, sweating due to weakness/anxiety, night sweat, fear of cold, fear of
wind.
6. Cardiac neurosis, gastric neurosis.
7. Stiff neck muscles, joint migratory pain, imagined limb pain.
8. Poor memory, slow reflexes, neurasthenia.
9. Premature ejaculation, catches cold easily, decreased immunity.

Some neurosis patients mainly suffer from gastrointestinal neurosis, some mainly suffer from
cardiac neurosis, some feel severe discomfort in the head region, others have many and all
possible symptoms. Among the patients that I have chatted with, many people have over a
dozen or even several dozens of symptoms, they come in all shapes and forms. The pattern of
the symptoms is that they show up one after the other in innumerable succession, making one
very panicky, as a matter of fact, there is only one source: the disorderly function of the
autonomic nerve causes the disorderly function of the immunity system. What is it that causes
the disorderly function of the autonomic nerve? I was very perplexed at the time and was
constantly looking for answers. At last after thorough research and having chatted with over a
thousand patients, I have come up with the formula: staying up at night + debauchery + long-
term sitting = finished. Debauchery alone would require a certain amount of damage before the
emergence of neurosis. After over a decade of masturbation, I only had prostatitis and
varicocele, although I had turned a lot uglier, my nerves were always in good condition.
Afterward I started to sit for long stretches of time, stayed up during the night, ate poorly, that’s
when neurosis appeared. One should put it in this way, the emergence of neurosis is the
aggregate result of many factors. For female patients, neurosis is induced by anger, big
pressure, staying up during the night and psychological stimulation such as family turning
hostile.

[Truth or false neurasthenia]

Due to addiction to masturbation, many brothers have experienced a large decrease in memory
and comprehension. Under these conditions, some brothers feel as if they have neurasthenia.
According to my observations, many brothers merely suffer from a decrease in brain power and
not from neurasthenia.

I have selected a few typical expressions of neurasthenia, everybody may make a comparison:

1. Male, 25 years old, due to a chance encounter at the age of 12 I came into contact with
masturbation, after 2 years of masturbation there appeared symptoms of discomfort:
dizziness, tinnitus, exhaustion throughout the entire body, insomnia, dim sight, a feeling that
the world in front of the eyes isn’t real as if living inside a dream, soreness in the waist,
depressed spirit, tight chest with short breathe, flustered heart and heart palpitations,
decreased memory, darkish yellow complexion, drowsiness and worn out, hair loss on both
sides of the temples, sweat inside the palms and the soles of the feet, shapeless stool, also
urinary diseases such as frequent urination, incontinence.

2. Hello big brother Soaring Eagle, I have been masturbating for at least 10 years. I’m 21 this
year. During the end of May this year I suddenly felt that my brain power was inadequate,
absent-minded, a hollow feeling towards the entire world. Because I was preparing for the
postgraduate exam I felt very helpless at the time, my body has always been healthy where
I have often played ball. I have come to realize that I should have neurasthenia. When it was
the most severe I was unable to fall asleep during the night, I slept a little over 2 hours each
night, had night sweat. I lost 5-6 pounds in weight, especially from the back region. My
stomach was still fine. The lower eyelids suddenly become dark, during the day I felt that my
eyes weren’t working optimally, the eyes were constantly under heavy pressure and made it
hard to open them, it was if I was drunk during the daytime, my god! I don’t dare to imagine,
at the time I dared not to go out to the streets for fear of being hit by a car...

3. I’m 20 this year and my body is turning thin and yellowish. 5 years ago I started to
masturbate without moderation. In the beginning, there were no symptoms, but a year later I
experienced a sudden sinking feeling at the back of my head while climbing the stairs, then I
started to feel dizzy. At first, I thought it was caused by my fever but the symptoms remained
without alleviation until this day. During the last 5 years I grew old and weak with each
passing day, strengthless body, depressed spirit, decreased memory, unable to focus my
attention, quality of sleep was abysmal. Slowly I turned into a useless person. I have also
seen many doctors and taken lots of medicines but to no avail.

[Being grateful to anxiety disorder]

Although anxiety disorder gave me tremendously painful experiences, I still need to be grateful
for it. Because I wouldn’t be the person I am today had it not been for my illness. Anxiety
disorder helped my growth, it is because of it that I started to study TCM on my own, it helped
me to understand life, to increase my awareness to a new level, it is a blessing in disguise,
anxiety disorder has transformed me. I was introduced to this path via illness. According to my
knowledge, Master Hong Yi or Li Shutong has also suffered from neurosis, neurosis was one
reason to why he left home, an abstract can be found below:

Page | 162
Today I read about the tale of Master Hong Yi, in Gao Shengjin’s [My Experiences of Becoming
a Monk at West Lake]. It is known in the beginning the reason to why he become a monk while
fasting: suffering from neurosis. It is said in the text:“The 5th year of the Republic of China has
arrived. Because I have seen in a Japanese magazine about the methods of fasting, that fasting
may cure various illnesses, my curiosity was raised and I wanted to try it. At the time I was
suffering from neurosis, by practicing fasting, whether or not I could recover is yet clear.”

[The experience of nearing death]

Neurosis, in serious cases there is a breakout of fright and the experience of impending death. I
have chosen 2 cases, everybody may look at the below:

1. During January this year I was out on the streets alone, suddenly I felt chest tightness,
flustered heart and palpitation, difficulty in breathing, a feeling of nearing death. I was
immediately rushed to the hospital. At the time my blood pressure was diagnosed to be
normal, heart rate at 100 beats/min, ECG normal. After that I did not dare to walk the streets
alone. In places with lots of people or when dining with other people, I would easily get
nervous. Nowadays the breakout occurs irregularly, when it happens I feel as if out of air,
heat palpitation, profuse sweat, chill in the entire body, a feeling of near death, a sense of
lacking reality, a sense of going nuts or losing control. Every attack would last for around 15
min, it is extremely uncomfortable. I would also have a headache from time to time and pain
in the neck. I have been tested by SCL-90, the fright factor is in the heavy range, anxiety in
the medium range and the rest are rising. The traditional Chinese doctor said that my
tongue was light in color with a thin white coating, the pulse is heavy and few in number. I
have type 2 diabetes, I’m worried about the side effects of taking Western medicine and
overburdening the body. But the effect of applying TCM, acupuncture, ear acupuncture
beans is so-so. I’m worried about the side effect of Western medicine and the chance to
develop addiction and dependency. I hope to apply for medicine according to the guidance
given by the doctor and in reducing my worries.

2. I have had anxiety disorder for 4 years and would often suffer from breakouts of fright. When
they occur my heart rate accelerates to 140/150. At first I thought I had heart issues but after
having done 5 ultrasonography and coronary artery CT, 2 times cardiac enzyme, 3 times
ECG, 100+ times 24-hour dynamic ECG, X-ray hyperthyroidism, all were normal. During the
outbreaks I would feel the veins going cold and then the heart beat increases for no reason,
very frightening! It is simply a feeling of going dead!! During the outbreaks the heartbeats
super fast, but on the printed ECG graphs the heart is only moving faster than usual, the
doctor diagnosed it as an outbreak of fright. Ack! I wasn’t given any medicines either, after
about 20 minutes the heartbeat automatically returned to normal to around 70 beats/min.
This is painful!

Some brothers have asked me on whether or not the outbreak of fright would lead to death. It’s
actually not easy to answer this question because dead people cannot talk. Those that have
survived will basically all say that the outbreak of the sudden death feeling will not lead to death.
In the entire country around 550 000 people die suddenly each year, do you think there are
neurosis sufferers among them?

[Masturbation will damage the nerves]

Masturbation will indeed damage the nerves but requires a certain degree of damage for that to
occur. If staying up late and sitting for long durations is in the equation then the chances of
encountering neurosis will be greatly increased. It is very painful once the nerves have been
damaged, that is a real symptoms hell, it is an unfathomable abyss. Once one has fallen in it is
very hard to climb out. Complete understanding is required for the chance of truly ridding the
abyss.

[Illness progress]

I have frequently masturbated for over a decade. Due to my love for exercising, early resting
habits, reasonable diet, neurosis have therefore never surfaced. Afterward I started to stay up
late and sitting for long durations, things started to look bad and my body was deteriorating by
the day. I was tormented by neurosis, anxiety and autonomic nervous system disorder, death
was preferable to life. The time to become ill was merely a month, in other words, a month after
I started to indulge I encountered neurosis. What’s even hard to believe is that during the period
of indulgence, I have done several hundreds of push-ups each day, benched 120 kg. After
taking off my clothes I seemed very strong and didn’t look like somebody that’s about to fall ill,
but still I have encountered neurosis, the kind that made death preferable to life. Along with it
came severe fright, anxiety and several dozens of bodily symptoms tormented me repeatedly.
Afterward I understood from studying TCM that being strong does not equate to being healthy.
Many strong people are actually sick in various ways, these are so-called hidden illnesses that
other people don’t know about. A person who truly understands health cultivation is a healthy
person. Strong people are not necessarily healthy, many people only appear strong on the
outside.

[Diagnosing experience]

I started out with gastrointestinal neurosis, afterward I went to gastroenterology where my


problems were treated as digestive problems. But the effect was very bad, only afterward did I
realize that I have been wrongly diagnosed where the culprit was with the nerves. I have also
seeing dermatologists and was treated as having skin issues, the effect was also poor. The
categorization of different branches of Western medicine has its pros and cons. The con is that
neurosis and related diseases are easily misdiagnosed. Some brothers with cardiac syndromes
are misdiagnosed for the better half of a year, their conditions remain after spending tens of
thousands in medical bills, just diagnosing fees amounts up to five figures. Afterwards I started
to check for myself, slowly I started to realize the possibility of having neurosis. Things become
more certain after having chatted with fellow patients, I then went to Neurology where my
anxiety disorder was confirmed.

[Hypochondria orientation]

After catching neurosis, extremely many brothers become hypochondriac. Due to this, they
constantly pay visits to the hospitals, their hospital bills will shock people. Hospitals will admit to
the fact that hypochondriac patients are generating income for the hospital. These people all
believe that they are about to go under, that they have caught some serious illness, hoping to
find it through diagnosis. After having received diagnosis all results turn out to be normal,
they feel a little better. After a while, they again feel discomfort and once again visits the
hospital, just like that many people have spent all their money on diagnosis. They actually don’t

Page | 164
know that is an issue with the nerves, nothing will be found by checking for organic issues. Of
course, what should be checked out should be checked out, there is no need to do frequent
checkups. After having done a checkup and having excluded organic issues, there is no need to
do frequent checkups. One must recognize the whereabouts of the problem, it is a problem with
the nerves.

[Destined to be misdiagnosed]

When the body encounters many symptoms of discomfort, the first reaction is certainly to check
it out at the hospital. But having gone through many checkups while suffering from neurosis, you
will find out that there is basically no serious problems, but the symptoms are apparent and
make one collapse, go into a panic and lose hope. When no serious problems are found
following a checkup, under these circumstances, family members will think that you are only
pretending, put in other words, it is all in your head and that you are actually not ill. These kinds
of misunderstanding towards neurosis are too many. Not only will family members
misunderstand you, many doctors will misunderstand you as well. Because that many doctors
also think that you are only imagining things, many patients are in the dilemma of not being
understood by people. The good news is that there is internet nowadays, this makes it possible
for one to find similar patients. Otherwise, if one is constantly not understood by other people, it
is very possible for one to take extreme measures. The reason to why many brothers like to
chat about symptoms is to seek comfort for the mind, knowing that many people are just like
oneself. In reality, chatting about symptoms alone is not enough, one cannot recover from doing
it, one must find the real cause behind the illness. If the cause is not correctly understood then
the chances to make a complete recovery is slim to none. Some brothers have spent five digit
or even six-digit sums on diagnosis fees, some brothers frequently visit the emergency, stays at
the hospital overnight, doctors are at a loss on what to do, nothing shows up in the diagnosis,
the body remaining in a weak condition. Some brothers ask me about what is wrong with them, I
would then tell them that neurosis is actually a problem with the functionality and not a problem
with the organ, basically nothing will show up in the diagnosis. Take an example; you have had
a bike for over a year, it is very used, you feel that it is incomparable with a new bike. It is very
tiresome to ride the old bicycle. You send in the old bicycle to the repair shop for diagnosis, all
parts are in working order, only that they are worn, they do not function as well as when they
were new. Actually, it is a similar situation with neurosis, the function is nowhere near as what it
used to be.

There is another kind of misunderstanding which comes from ordinary people. Many people
think that depression and anxiety disorder originates from problems in the mind and is unrelated
to the physical body, the issue is a product of the mind, this is actually gravely incorrect. Many
people are perfectly fine before the illness strikes, they are optimistic, only to be struck down by
a sudden case of anxiety disorder. The so-called psychological illnesses are not purely
psychological but have a basis in physiology. Constant masturbation injures the kidney qi,
staying up during the night and long-term sitting also injures the spleen and the liver, neurosis
then appears after that. If you merely think that psychological illnesses are imagined, this is
incorrect. This is the usual belief of today by thinking that psychological illnesses are imagined,
this is actually false, this is coming from somebody who happens to be a deep experiencer and
has done thorough research. I think that those people who have not been deep experiencers
themselves have a lot of biased thoughts, this includes lots of points of argumentation on
medical textbooks, all of which is incorrect and is not congruent with reality. This is similar with
harmlessness theories, nowadays it has made it into the textbooks, can we say that
harmlessness theory is correct? Reality has proven that it is false, completely believing in books

Page | 165
is inferior to having no books. Correct points of arguments should be carried on, if it is wrong
then we will need to be brave in correcting them. Reality has proven, psychological illness is not
simply a problem with the mind, it is not due to overthinking. Take an example, everybody is
familiar with the idiom of the bird which is startled by the twang of the bow. The bird was already
injured, upon hearing the sound of the bow it became nervous and the wound ruptures resulting
in the bird falling down. Everybody think for a moment, if this bird is not already injured, will it
still fall down? Certainly not, neurosis is actually also like this. If your kidney qi is abundant, will
you catch neurosis? TCM: abundant kidney qi, ten thousand evils is extinguished. Therefore,
the break out of psychological illnesses have a physiological foundation, the reason being that
your body is weakened, given a stimulant the illness suddenly breaks out. Psychological
illnesses are not that simple either, it is accompanied by a host of bodily symptoms. Having an
anxious mood is not representative of having an anxiety disorder, a depressed mood does not
represent having depression. Some patients have reported in such a fashion; previously he is a
very optimistic person but became anxious following the outbreak of the illness. His anxiety
disorder did not come from feeling anxious, rather following the outbreak of the illness did
different orientations of anxiety, fear and compulsion appear. I was also like this, I did not
overthink and was always optimistic, following staying up at night, long-term sitting and sexual
debauchery I came to have an anxiety disorder.

If we are to discuss whether or not there are imagined anxiety disorders, I think that if these
cases really exist they only take on a tiny portion. For instance, some people have a naturally
poor constitution, their kidney qi is severely inadequate, being subject to a little stimulant in such
case might also make anxiety disorder appear. Throughout my analysis of thousands of cases, I
can say that 99% of the cases have a physiological basis, yet the physiological foundation
under the outbreak of these cases is not due to a naturally poor constitution, instead it is caused
by self-indulgence and poor lifestyle habits, it is not a product of imagination.

[Medication memories]

Taking medication is an experience that I cannot stand to look back, this is because I was
severely dependent on medicines and took them as I took in food. I still have a big box of
unfinished medicine at home, many have expired, I have kept them as a reminder that I once
lived in symptom hell. I don’t want to indulge myself again, I don’t want to return to the symptom
hell where death is preferable to life. At the time I had taken several dozen bottles of Oryzanol
without much result. I took Deanxit every day, in the beginning, the effect was quite good, after
having taken a good amount of it I developed drug resistance, I then went to see the doctor and
was given another medicine, the drug resistance continued. Just taking the drugs themselves
made me spend a lot of money. The main issue is that I wasn’t healed from the medicines alone,
at most I felt a little better, that is truly death is preferable to living. Being so young of age but
was dependent on medicines to stay alive, when I didn’t take medicine it is suffering beyond
death. Ordinary people have no ways of understanding the feeling, only fellow patients
understand.

[Pointing directly to the cause]

The cause of the illness was already mentioned in the above articles, for male patients, it is:
staying up at night + indulgence + long-term sitting, this is the answer I gathered from chatting
with over a thousand fellow patients. The kidneys are rooted in original qi, staying up during the
night, indulgence and long sitting are like the 3 hatches striking at the tree of life. Of course, a

Page | 166
few individuals take drugs, drinks excessively, goes into a violent rage, these are also very
damaging to the body and also easily leads towards neurosis. In addition, genetics, pressure,
changes in the family situation and other factors also might induce neurosis.

[Recovery process]

The recovery process of neurosis basically takes 2 aspects:

1. Curing the mind


2. Curing the body

The body and the mind are one, curing the body will affect the mind. Similarly, curing the mind
will also affect the body. Having a healthy mind is also very important and critical, therefore,
upon having neurosis, many patients start to believe in Buddhism. Buddhism is very good for
cultivating the mind, the physical health is affected by cultivating the mind. I am a believer in
Buddhism, of course, I do have Buddhist karma. Those fellow patients who lack Buddhism
karma may study other forms of traditional cultures, these are also very beneficial to mind
cultivation, such as [Di Zi Gui]. When the mind is right the body will also be right (Translator’s
note: one good way to determine if one has Buddhist karma is simply by looking at one’s
inclination towards Buddhist teaching).

In the aspect of curing the body, I recommend recuperation via TCM and then study health
cultivation on one’s own. One may select those health cultivation exercises that are suitable for
oneself and persist in practicing them. By curing the body and the mind simultaneously,
neurosis will slowly recover. Serious cases will require at least 1 year of rebooting coupled with
health cultivation. Many fellow patients do not understand reboot, do not comprehend it, these
patients have actually not realized the importance of essence preservation at all. The kidney is
determined at birth, the spleen is determined after birth, to recover, one must understand
essence preservation as well as understanding spleen cultivation. By doing a good job on all
fronts and making adequate efforts in cultivation, neurosis will then have a chance to recover.
Otherwise, many fellow patients have not recovered in 5 years, there are even those who have
not recovered in over a decade. The reason being that they do not understand health cultivation,
do not emphasize essence preservation! Those patients who continuously leak, masturbate,
self-ravage have not come to an understanding, without understanding, neurosis is too difficult
to recover from. Even if neurosis were to recover it will easily break out again. Many patients
upon indulging encounter relapses, this is very commonly seen. Therefore, neurosis patients
must recognize the importance of rebooting, or else it will be very difficult for you to recover from
neurosis, symptom hell will make death preferable to living. Rebooting and cultivation is the
foundation towards recovery, or else no matter the number of medicines you take it will still be
leaked away.

[Guidance in seeking medical advice]

I recommend going to a TCM doctor, furthermore an aged and good TCM doctor, one in a
hundred! Due to the number of charlatans, when you are seeking a doctor it is best to first
gather understanding from the internet on which doctor is good, which doctor possesses superb
medical expertise. One may go to the hospital’s website or TCM QQ group to gather
understanding. Otherwise, by blindly seeking a medical advice, there is a high chance of
running into charlatans. Fine if some charlatans are unable to find a solution, some even
recommend harmlessness theories to you or tell you that your illness is all imagined. These type

Page | 167
of charlatans lack true understanding between their patients, their medical expertise is worthy of
doubt. Good TCM doctors are always in the minority, those who have received handed down
teachings and possessing good insights are even rarer in number, therefore seek a good TCM
doctor at all cost.

Take another example, a Ph.D. student in TCM versus a TCM doctor with middle school
education and 40 years of experience, which would you pick? I think that those in the knowing
will for sure pick the older doctor. The older doctor has ample experiences and rich experiences
in treatment, these are unobtainable from textbooks from the school, only through practice and
repeated experience may the true workings be understood. The paper talk will never result in a
good TCM doctor. There are many TCM doctors graduating from fields of study, if you were to
talk theory with him, he will outmatch you in theoretical knowledge, his memory is strong and he
can talk endlessly. What I want to ask is? How much practical experience is there to be had?
The handing down of knowledge is important in TCM, being able to receive instructions from
great masters and gaining insights through communion with them will allow for a relatively quick
progress. Truly skillful TCM doctors are forever in the minority, what he knows is broader and
deeper than the ordinary TCM doctor.

[Final summary]

I have found the path through sickness and so should belong to the experiencer category,
having deeply experienced it and then started to research into TCM. I’m also a recovered
person because I have attained understanding I was able to recover. Only when we have
understood do we know what to do. I hope the neurosis patients will receive beneficial
inspiration from reading this article. I have crawled out from symptom hell, the feeling is all too
clear. Hopefully, my article has helped you. Persist in the way that I have pointed out and I
believe that you will recover. But recovery is a slow process, it requires patience, keep on
fighting!

Season 31 [Soaring Eagle experience: the sharp weapon in recovery,
sexual indifference and masturbating while dreaming]

Foreword:

Let’s talk a little again about harmlessness theories. Quite a few brothers are proficient in
English due to the fact that they have studied abroad. They would often browse English
websites, then they tell me that harmlessness theories are not being championed abroad, or put
it this way, harmlessness theory is an outdated theory, the research results from Western
medicine nowadays says that masturbation induces body asymmetry and shortens the lifespan.
I think future research results from Western medicine will be in agreement with the conclusions
from TCM. Facts have also proven that harmlessness theories will only harm people, it is a
great mockery and a wrong form of thinking. Who knows how many people have come to harm
due to it, needless to say, hundreds of millions of people have encountered the poison from
harmlessness theories. Today it has also made its way into the textbooks, one could imagine
how the youth would react upon reading those theories?

People born in the 80s are victims of harmlessness theories, so are people born in the 90s,
those who are born after the 2000s are about to enter puberty. If these people have not formed
a correct perception towards masturbation, they will very likely fall into its trap. The youngest
brothers that I have chatted with nowadays are 13 years of age, there are also many 14-year-
olds. A 13-year-old brother has encountered prostatitis but doesn’t dare to tell his parents, even
more so does he fear to go to the hospital, how similar he is to my previous self. He told me that
he has read a small pamphlet from his school, in it was harmlessness theories, after that he was
resolute in his belief and was heavily addicted to masturbation, this resulted in the appearance
of frequent urination and swelling in the lower abdomen. I told him to quit masturbation
immediately, or else it’s very possible that his development will become affected.

If harmlessness theories are not corrected, then generation upon generation of youth will
become victims of its poison. This is poison in the realm of the mind, more covert than poison
on the body. It is also more easily ignored by people, harming people in the fashion of the frog
in the boiling pot, allowing the majority of the people to lower their guards. By waiting until the
sudden awareness once the body is ridden with symptoms, recovery from there will be a slow
process. It is said by Jiaxing in the previous season that the recovery time for the body will take
at least 1 year. I’m in agreement with his point, after all, many people have had a long history of
masturbation, quite are few are suffering from chronic prostatitis with many different forms of
discomfort felt throughout the body. Therefore to recover will really require a year of time. I’m
not saying that you will be able to recover with a dozen days of rebooting, nor will you become
completely healed within a few months, to truly recover will basically require at least a year. Of
course, by persisting in rebooting and health cultivation for 3 months, you will clearly feel the
improvement. If you continue in this way for a year while doing everything correctly; rebooting
properly, putting in the proper efforts in cultivation, recovery in this way will be quite optimal.
Brothers who know how to cultivate the health will recover relatively quickly, besides a repeat
of the symptoms is unlikely to appear. In contrast, the many brothers who don’t know how to
cultivate the health, after a few months of rebooting, recovery will remain subpar. Therefore, we
must put in enough effort in health cultivation!

Page | 169
Lately, quite a few brothers have reported the issue of unclean viewing to me. (Translator’s note:
unclean viewing in this context refers to patikulamanasikara, a Buddhist meditational method of
overcoming lust by meditating on the foul)

Some of the unclean images nowadays are very stimulating, looking at them makes one want to
throw up. Quite a few brothers have reported to me that they cannot bear to look at the images,
it affects their appetite. Although I’m a believer in Buddhism, rarely do I look at those types of
unclean images. I have seen them before, it is indeed disgusting and makes one want to throw
up. Brothers with a low mental threshold might carry with them lingering images. If these
stimulants leave imprints of mental images and affect the married life between couples, I think
that the majority of the brothers will choose divorce which is undesirable. Actually, unclean
viewing is a form of visualization, a little bit of imagination is enough, strong stimulants are not
needed. To combat sexual fantization, it can be halted by constant studying and raising one’s
awareness, memorizing the mnemonic chants of stopping sexual fantizations, one does not
need to view that kind of strongly stimulating images. Of course for some brothers, images from
unclean viewing is suitable for them as it allows them to quickly raise their awarenesss and
determination. For other brothers, it may be unacceptable. I recommend everybody to choose
the level of stimulant intensity according to their own reactions. Normally I would employ
unclean viewing. The importance is in the method of visualization, a little bit of visualization and
stimulation is enough, I think that this intensity of simulation is suitable for me. Stronger
stimulation is not always better, an intensity which suites oneself is the best!

We will enter into the main topic below.

In this season we will talk in detail about the sharp weapon in recovery, sexual indifference and
masturbating while dreaming, the specifics can be found below:

The body is cultivated through movement, the mind is cultivated through stillness, together they
comprise the way of health cultivation. In stillness work, I recommend everyone to choose
standing qigong or sitting meditation. As to moving work, there are many choices such as Eight
Brocade exercise, Taiji boxing, Liuzijue qigong, stretching, meridian drumming etc, these are all
very good. But in this season I’m talking about the sharp weapon in recovery and not about the
aforementioned health cultivation methods but on aerobic exercise. I have previously been
working as a personal trainer, I’m quite familiar with all types of exercises. I used to think that
strength exercises were the best forms of exercise, it allows people to feel strengthened. Later
after researching into TCM, I found out that strength exercise was not the best form of exercise.

TCM:
1. Forceful lifting to some extent, such as excessive bedroom activities, excessive sweating,
injures the kidneys.
2. Due to the use of strong force, kidney qi is thus injured, the Extrapoints therefore becomes
bad.

When I caught anxiety disorder I made a mistake, it’s a mistake that many patients make and
that is hoping to gain health through strength exercises. Later I found out that it was an
impossible task and in doing so was going backward. When the body is weak one should
choose still cultivation, afterward one may do some moderate exercises. Strength exercise is
not the best choice, in bad cases, the body will become worse and worse off. When you kidney
qi is still abundant, strength exercise may promote health, when you are weak, strength
exercise may bring on the opposite result. Following an exercise session at the time, my

Page | 170
muscles were growing, but I clearly felt fatigued in the body, unable to recover, upon waking up
I was still very tired. After researching into TCM I discovered that I was walking on the wrong
path, I shouldn’t have chosen strength exercise but instead should have chosen cultivational
practices or aerobic exercises. In the beginning, I started out with taking a walk, my body then
slowly recovered, this is followed by a brisk walk and a slow jog, then I was able to play a little
basketball. Once playing basketball felt effortless then this is the time to do some strength
exercises. Recovery is a process, starting from the basic of taking a walk. I quite emphasize
taking a walk, it’s actually the best method of exercise in the world, it suits nearly everybody. For
many stroke patients, the doctor would recommend walking a couple thousands of steps each
day as this is beneficial to the recovery.

There are lots of benefits to aerobic exercises. Quite a few brothers suffer from eye bags and
black eye rings and they won’t go away after a few months of rebooting. But through persisting
in aerobic exercises the issue of eye bags and black eye rings will be greatly alleviated. At the
time when I was in college, I took up running for a month and then my eye bags and black eye
rings all disappeared. A period back I saw a post made by a brother, his eye bags also
disappeared after he took up jogging. Eye bags and black eye rings can be removed via aerobic
exercises. Therefore, brothers with these type of problems would do best to establish good
exercising habits, this will benefit the recovery from eye bags and black eye rings. In addition,
there is prostatitis. Persist in aerobic exercises and prostatitis will be greatly alleviated. Frequent
urination and scrotum dampness for instance will also become a lot better. In TCM it is
mentioned that movement raises the yang, moderate exercise has the ability to promote the
bodily recovery. The level of intensity should however be observed in aerobic exercises, this is
because profuse sweating damages the yang. At the beginning when the body is weak one may
walk briskly and let the body sweat just so slightly.

At one time I was jogging every day and was dripping with sweat, but I didn’t feel any discomfort
because I was very young at the time, my kidney qi was still sufficient and is able to take
damage. Afterward, when my body has been severely weakened I would feel discomfort for
several days every time I had sweated greatly. Therefore, when the body is weakened, one
should adopt a minor sweating exercise intensity. This is my awareness through repeated
experience, I have also taken many detours in the past. Exercising is a very deep subject,
everyone knows that life depends on movement, but as to how to exercise, its methods and the
quantity all deserves special attention. Inappropriate exercise not only provides no benefit to the
health but also brings illnesses to the body. For example, some people engage in intensive
exercise while they have a cold, they then catch myocarditis, some even induce sudden death.
Some brothers over-exercises, exerting during the day, at night they have an emission. To
recover even better we should exercise actively. At the same time we must have a deep
understanding towards exercising, in this way there is a guarantee in recovery, or else in bad
cases, it is only counterproductive!

There is another apparent benefit with aerobic exercises and that is the ability to improve the
skin complexion. By persisting in exercising for a period, you will notice that your skin has
improved, the complexion is a lot better, there is a color to it, the face will become bright and
clean, giving out a sunny and refreshing look. Some brothers have severe acne or have very
poor complexion, like a ghost, moderate aerobic exercises will improve things in these situations.
Internal secretions can be adjusted through aerobic exercises, once the adjustment is finely
tuned, the skin will naturally improve. Many brothers have reported that following rebooting and
actively exercising, they have become handsome, exercise is the best cosmetics for men!
Exercising will also boost a person’s confidence, there is no falsehood in this statement! But

Page | 171
many brothers have also reported that upon relapsing, they again turned ugly and wretched, the
Spirit is lowered. Therefore we need to raise our vigilance and do our best to not relapse, study
more to increase our awareness, reaching the apex of awareness as early as possible and
permanently ridding ourselves from the evil habit of masturbation.

In the below I have extracted some of the benefits of aerobic exercises, everybody may take a
look:

1. Say goodbye to the bloated figure

Many people take up jogging in order to lose weight. Jogging is indeed the best way to lose
weight, more calories are burned while jogging.

2. Prevent the degradation of your bones and muscles

Long-term sitting in front of our computers make our bones ever weaker, while moderate
exercises will allow your bones to remain healthy and can slow down the aging process.

3. Resisting illnesses

Jogging can decrease the risk of getting a stroke, frequent jogging has already become a
treatment advice to those who are in the risk of a breakout or in the early stages of osteoporosis,
diabetes, and high blood pressure.

4. Maintaining or increasing the level of health

Jogging can help to train the 50% of the often idle portion of the lungs. Jogging will also help to
increase your lymphocyte and thereby increase your immunity.

5. Make you more confident

Like other single sports, jogging can increase your self-confidence. Jogging allows you to
complete round after round of attempts, making you stronger, surer of yourself, bestowing
yourself with a feeling of strength and freedom.

6. Relax, decrease the pressure

Slow jogs can divert the attention, one becomes immersed with the surroundings, all trouble will
surely vanish.

7. Famous “runner’s peak experience”

Jogging, especially outdoors, will enable the body to release a substance which will produce a
feeling of happiness and joy (runner’s peak experience). Jogging is already been used to treat
clinical depression, addictions and so on.

8. Exercises your brain

Just as it is helpful to your body, jogging is also very helpful to your brain. Through jogging
many obstacles have been overcome, you have learned focus and determination.

The awareness that I have now is that aerobic exercises are a form of medicine! It is a form of
treatment and it is also free, the benefits are many. But moderation should also be minded.
Brothers who are obese may adopt the method of taking a stroll because if the mass is too
heavy, more jogging would injure the knees. There is a saying: There are a hundred advantages
to jogging except that it injures the knees. Even normal people should pay attention to
moderation when jogging. I have tried many ways of exercising, taking a walk is still the best. Of
course, lots of walking would also result in knee pains, therefore the “step count” should also be
monitored. Every day goes out and walk for approximately 5000 steps and then persevere. One
may adopt fast walking, the result will be quite good this way. If you feel very fatigued after
walking for 5000 steps, change to 3000 steps. The adjustment of the exercising intensity will
depend on the reaction of one’s own body. Once you are accustomed to 3000 steps you may
appropriately increase the quantity.

“Racewalking” exercises are popular abroad right now. Racewalking is a form of effective
aerobic fat burning exercise, more heat and calories can be burned through it. Racewalking can
tighten the contours of the legs, frequent training can raise a person’s Spirit, making one more
confident. At the end of the day, walking is actually the best form of exercise, this is something
that I have realized after thorough studies. Many sufferers of anxiety disorder experience severe
headaches, making exercising impossible. In these circumstances, the path towards health
basically all starts from walking. Sufferers of neurosis should not ignore exercise but should
choose the form of exercise that suits them. Taking a walk every day is actually a very good
method of recovery. My health also started from walking, once walking became easy it can be
changed into a fast walk or slow jog. When fast walking became easy I went to play basketball.
When basketball became easy I now do some strength exercises. But my main form of exercise
is still fast walking, strength training being a compliment.

Actively exercising is actually the same as “recharging vitality”, just like charging a cell phone.
Moderate exercises allow you to maintain a state of radiating vitality. Nowadays I call the
basketball court “vitality field”, playing basketball is the same as “recharging vitality”. Of course,
right now I pay very close attention to exercise intensity, sometimes when I’m not playing in a
match I would shoot some hoops and exercise the muscles and the bones, expose myself to
some sunshine, sweat in small amounts, that is adequate. Aerobic exercises are the sharp
weapon for recovery. Brothers with excellent exercising habits will recover double as fast. Many
brothers would sit for long durations facing the computer. People have an inherent laziness, by
not moving for a long time you will be more and more inclined to not move. Therefore if we want
to recover better we should get moving, do more moderate aerobic exercises and recovery will
be faster this way.

Let me share with everyone another story. In those years when Deng Xiaoping was asked on
what he did during the Long March of the Red Army, he calmly replied: “walked along”. What a
“walked along”, the main idea of health cultivation is actually contained within it. When Deng
Xiaoping was old, his method of exercising was to walk around a flower bed for a dozen laps,
this is the best form of exercise. Those who do squats for several hundreds of kilos will not live
to be 90+, but a person who “knows to walk” with “walking cultivation awareness” can live to be
90+. The form of exercise is to be carefully selected, there are over a hundred forms of

Page | 173
exercises, walking is still the best among them! I have recovered relatively well, it is inseparable
from “knows to walk”. Persisting in aerobic exercises will on one hand promote the functional
recovery of the body, on the other hand it will greatly reduce the chance of illness breakouts.
Frequent exercise will increase the interferon levels in the blood. Interferon is the immune
enhancer of the body, it has the effect of preventing diseases!

Rebooting is a system engineering, it must be done professionally. As to how to recover and


how to cultivate the body is actually also system engineering. Only by doing well on both fronts
will the recovery be relatively optimal. As to how to recover, aerobic exercise is the sharp
weapon in your hands. Make sure to employ aerobic exercises to promote the recovery of your
health, my advice is to choose a level of intensity that suits you, persist well!

Lastly a summary: persist in doing moderate aerobic exercises is a form of medicine, ideally one
should often take this medicine. By doing aerobic exercises you will receive all sorts of benefits.
By sitting down for long durations, the kidneys, liver and the spleen will be injured, the loss is
too great!

In the below let’s talk about the phenomenon of sexual indifference

A while ago I saw some brother has been posting, saying that he feels nothing towards the
opposite sex, a feeling of indifference towards sex. He asked if this is a sign of rebooting
success. This situation is one of sexual indifference, when the kidneys are deficient, the
phenomenon of hyperactivity in the yang due to ying deficiency will appear. The majority of
brothers encounters hyperactivity in the yang while some brothers upon having been damaged
to a certain degree will experience sexual indifference. At this time, normal stimulation is
useless for him, strong stimulation will not necessarily excite him. This is when he will think
whether or not he has successfully rebooted, in reality, this is not rebooting success. Real
rebooting success will require constantly increasing one’s awareness and is not the same as
temporarily feeling no desire.

Through persistent rebooting and health cultivation, desire will slowly raise its head, that is when
your awareness and determination will be tested. Many brothers upon rebooting will enter a
period of desire hibernation, desire during this period will be very cold, sexual fantization are
also extremely few. Many people will think that they have succeeded in rebooting. But after the
desire hibernation period, one then enters the peak period for relapses, that is when your level
of awareness and determination will be visible. If your level of awareness is very high, the
temptation demon can be vanquished. If your awareness is not yet there, then only abuse from
the temptation demon awaits, relapse will be hard to avoid.

Normally, the onset of severe sexual indifference will require active treatment. There is a certain
relationship between what causes sexual indifference and kidney deficiency, it is also intricately
connected with many factors, such as:

1. Mood: when a person is in a poor mood, desire will easily decrease temporarily.
2. Tobacco and alcohol addiction: long-term chain smoking will more easily lead to impotence,
long-term alcohol addiction can lead to a decrease in sexual function and desire.
3. Medication: long-term or large dose use of certain medication can reduce sexual function or
even lead to male impotence and sexual indifference.
4. Living conditions: living in poorly ventilated, overly cramped environment will induce
insufficient oxygen supply to the brain, affecting sexual function and lowering sexual desire.

Page | 174
5. Seasonal temperature: many people have relatively strong sexual desire during the low
temperatures of winter and spring. But during the drenching height of the summer, sexual
desire often declines temporarily.
6. Age: most males reach their sexual peak following adolescence. Decline starts to take place
during 30-40 and becomes prevalent from around the age of 50.
7. Incentive: monotonous lifestyle or little social interaction, desire then becomes inhibited,
staying in a rather low level.
8. Feeling: cracks appear in one’s feelings towards the spouse, both sides are fed up with
each other, desire greatly decreases.
9. Physiological cycles: desire will experience cyclical changes, expressions of sexual
indifference appears during the troughs.
10. Health condition: seriously ill patients are very likely to experience sexual indifference.

Lastly, let’s talk about the issue of masturbation while dreaming.

Many brothers masturbate during dreaming, this is the real act of masturbation while in the state
of half asleep and half awake. If one dreams about masturbation then that doesn’t count as
relapse, because it is only a dream without the act itself. If masturbation takes place during the
half-awakened state then it counts as relapsing. There are brothers asking questions like this in
almost every season, some brother says that during the day they are alert and are in control,
but once they sleep they are no longer in control. This phenomenon is intricately related to mind
addiction. The degree of addiction is heavy, a familiar road to masturbation has already been
formed, one will then masturbate subconsciously, sometimes one is not even aware of it. For
instance, some brothers upon awakening discover that their pants have come off, or suddenly
wakes up during ejaculation. They have already formed a habit of grabbing hold of the erection,
especially during sleep.

When this kind of situation occurs, in one way we will need to study more and increase our level
of awareness, constantly cleansing our consciousness. On the other way, we will need to make
up our mind and exercise willpower to change this habit. Suggest more to oneself, besides
urinating, do not touch with the hand under other circumstances, establish this rule. The
determination must be great, by persisting for some time, this kind of masturbation during
dreaming can be avoided.

In this season I will recommend 5 books. In martial arts novels, a rookie may become a master
by practicing a rare book in the martial arts circles. My awareness at this stage is inseparable
from reading lots of books. The real masters are all adept at learning. Warren Buffett’s
extraordinary power comes from reading! The more study the more the knowing, no knowing
without study. Knowing does not follow from being born but comes from studying, thinking and
realizing. Many books are actually interlinked with rebooting, by comprehending these books,
your awareness will naturally rise a few levels. (Translator’s note: the below book
recommendations are all in Chinese, I would encourage readers to find and share similar books
in English that are worth studying)

1. [太素脉]: this is a wonder book, it integrates the study of the pulse with divinatory art, worth
to study.
2. [逝去的武林]: although the narrative is about the anecdotes from the martial arts circles of
the past, practicing martial arts and health cultivation are actually completely interlinked. I
have realized many things related to health cultivation from reading this book.
3. [圆运动的古中医学]: famous doctor Li Ke revision. I like this book very much.

Page | 175
4. [太清神鉴]: this is a book which purports to teach physiognomy reading for fortune telling. It
is a well sought after and treasured book by all kinds of distinguished people. I have
continuously studied physiognomy. Because physiognomy is interlinked with TCM, an
indulgent person will undergo changes in both the physique and the face, all of this is
mentioned in the book. I have read [麻衣神相] and [柳庄神相] but I like [太清神鉴] the most.
If you want to become an able person, understanding more and deeper principles, [太清神鉴]
must not be missed.
5. [中医火神派三书]: I also like this TCM book very much. Good books never bore me, every
reading will bring about new rewards, the saying that reviewing the old to know the new.

In this season I have recommended 5 books, my house is full of books. I will share with
everyone the books which I think are good. Through practicing these books, your awareness will
be increased. If you have indeed arrived at certain understandings, this is very helpful for
rebooting.

Season 32 [Soaring Eagle experience: the issue of absorption rate,
rebooting stabilization period, sperm quality]

Foreword:

Recently I saw a post made by a brother on the topic of getting the rookies up to speed. Lots of
rookies are pouring into the rebooting forums, they are actually very much in need of guidance
from veteran brothers, newcomers have 2 notable characteristics: 1, many misconceptions,
many people still carry remnants of harmlessness theories. 2, many issues, there are many
complicated issues in the rebooting process. I have so far answered several thousands of
questions in all shapes and forms. The misconceptions with rookies must receive immediate
correction, or else his doubting mind will cause relapses. To be successful in rebooting, one
must first understand the problems that one has encountered, or else while one is carrying
doubt, it will affect the self-confidence and determination. Brothers with doubts are extremely
easily swayed. Therefore, we veterans should promptly help the rookies, eliminate their doubts,
correct their misconceptions, help them to establish rebooting self-confidence, provide timely
guidance in the rebooting process, allow newcomers to soon find the correct path of rebooting
and not to reboot in a blind or forceful manner.

I remember when I used to reply to questions, the foremost foundation was on zero reply
threads. My thought at the time was to eliminate threads with zero replies, providing rookies with
immediate guidance to the best of my ability. Nowadays I mainly reply to questions within my
own threads, rarely would I still reply to other threads. My state of life these days is this; not to
over-strain myself. Every day I would reply to around 30 questions, up to 50 at most. Normally it
is limited to within 50. During National Day I would answer more questions, there are several
days when I exceeded 80 per day because it is a holiday I would reply to more questions. When
making more replies I would clearly feel that my energy is not enough, easily leading to fatigue
in the body and the mind. Therefore, nowadays I would limit the number of replies in order to
adjust my stamina and better holding fast to the rebooting forums.

Actually I have replied to many questions, some of them I have replied to over several dozens of
times. But toward every newcomer, I would maintain proper patience because I think that
newcomers are very much in need of patient guidance. When you are guiding the rookies, you
are actually also reinforcing your own positive energy, you are also increasing your
determination. At the same time, you will also transfer this helping attitude to the rookies.
Sooner or later the rookies will turn into veterans, veterans will guide newcomers, in this way a
pleasant atmosphere will be formed in the rebooting forums, it will grow into the better and
everybody will be able to reboot more and more professionally. I believe that there will be many
successful rebooters in the future. Of course there is already a batch of successful brothers,
they have already entered into the stable period of rebooting, they are also selflessly helping
more newcomers. Rookies these days are very fortunate, the seniors have already paved the
way for you. As long as you put in the efforts, constantly studying in order to increase the
awareness, to permanently rid yourself of masturbation is only a matter of time. Rebooting
forums also heavily emphasize the importance of health cultivation. In the forums you will also
learn about health cultivation, this will be very helpful towards your recovery. To reboot is one
aspect, to cultivate and recover is another aspect, these will need to be grasped tightly by both
hands, recovery will be quite optimal in this way.

Page | 177
We must help the rookies, helping others is the equivalent of helping ourselves. Rookies will
become veterans, veterans will again help the rookies, knowledge pass on from teacher to the
student, we will need to pass on this helping attitude. Let more people realize the harm from
masturbation, help more newcomers to completely quit masturbation and renew their bright
health, everybody fight on!

My advice to the newcomers is to study more, I recommend to read through the quality articles
found in the rebooting forums a few more times. Clear answers to many questions will be found
in those articles. Through studying these quality articles your awareness will rise quite fast.

We will enter into the main topic below.

In this season we will discuss in detail the issues of the absorption rate, rebooting the
stabilization period and sperm quality.

The absorption rate mentioned in this season is not about the rate of food absorption in the
stomach, but rather the absorption rate in studying rebooting articles. In my forums and in my
private mailbox are reports from brothers who have rebooted for over a year without success,
with repeated relapses and unchanged symptoms, they become very discouraged and hopeless.
Upon asking if he has read rebooting articles he answers that he has read all of them, he
understands all of the principles in rebooting, the only problem is that he cannot keep up the
reboot. I remember a brother mentioned that he has become immune to rebooting articles, by
looking at the topic of the article he would know what the contents are. Some brothers have
even developed a fed up mood, they study rebooting articles while being fed up. I have
mentioned in previous articles when the fed up mood appears, one must pay attention to
immediate adjustment, allowing oneself to regain the excellent rebooting mood.

At the end of the day, to completely reboot is a process of constantly cultivating one’s
awareness, the awareness must be constantly raised.

Some people advance very fast in the beginning after they have studied for a while they seem
to reach a plateau, they awareness ceases to increase any further. Many brothers know all the
principles and knowledge about rebooting, but the problem is that their understanding is not
deep enough, the rate of absorption is too low. After reading an article, what can be
remembered and rehashed is too few, comprehension by one’s own thought processes is too
low. Just like when I ask you if you have seen a certain movie? You answer that you have seen
it. Then I ask you about the contents of the movie and you could only remember the big picture,
you have no recollection of any detailed contents. Actually, this is what is meant by a too low
absorption rate. Just like when you eat a certain food, you have only absorbed part of its
nutrient while missing out on the most important nutrient. I tend to read a good book or article
many times, constantly extracting and summarizing, extracting its core thoughts. This is like the
process of filtering for gold in sand, you must extract the spirit of the article and then completely
absorb it, your awareness will become more powerful this way. You must find the spirit of an
article, actually, the spirit of an article is merely contained in a few sentences. Write down all the
important sentences in a notebook, read it frequently, try to memorize the contents on your own
initiative until you can freely recall the contents, once you can do this you are basically there. If
you are able to combine with your own experiences, with deeper thinking and realization, that is
even better.

Page | 178
At the time the raising of my awareness took over a year, within this time I was constantly taking
notes, jotting down what I thought were good sentences and points of view, constantly reviewing
the contents, my awareness would steadily increase in this manner. In the beginning, the
distance between me and the temptation demon is like this: I was abused by the temptation
demon for over a decade, I was always helpless towards it. Every time I encountered it I would
be abused, especially during the weekends when I was alone, that’s when the temptation
demon likes to come out and make me miserable. My awareness during that time was too low, I
was lacking studying awareness altogether, that is why I have failed to reboot for over a decade.
Afterward, I realized the importance of studying, constantly studying to raise my own awareness.
Then I noticed a phenomenon when I ran into the temptation demon again I was able to defeat it.
This is like playing chess with the temptation demon, previously you have always lost due to
inadequate awareness, once you have raised the awareness through studying you will notice
that you can subdue the demon, you can defeat it and it no longer can touch you. The only way
of reaching this stage is through persistent studying and increasing one’s awareness. Otherwise
if you relax your studies and vigilance, relapsing will only be a matter of time. There are people
who have relapsed after 200 days, a year, therefore we should not wander away from rebooting
articles, not leaving the rebooting forums. Try to take some time to visit the forums every day,
even for 5 minutes, help the newcomers while also reinforcing one’s positive energy. If you are
unable to go on the internet, you should take out your notebook and review the rebooting
knowledge. Once one has entered the rebooting stabilization period, a lot of time is not required
for everyday studies, it is adequate to learn through repetition and maintaining the vigilance.

The best method of raising one’s rate of absorption towards rebooting articles is: take notes!
Note taking is the sharp weapon towards raising the rate of absorption!

Up until today I still take frequent notes. The process of taking notes is to constantly summarize,
deepening the memory and understanding. In your notebook is where the thought essences can
be found, thoughts and viewpoints that you think are important should all be summarized in a
notebook. Right now I have a dozen notebooks like this, through this process of accumulation
was I able to gather the level of thought awareness that I now possess. Many brothers are
students, students should have the habit of taking notes, teachers should also have emphasized
the importance of note-taking. Therefore, in rebooting we should also make full use of this
excellent tradition, constantly jotting down the essential rebooting sentences and then
ceaselessly reviewing them, learning through repetition. From every repetition you will gain new
insights, in this way your awareness will constantly be raised.

Below is a paragraph from a brother named “let everything be clear”, everybody may take a look:

[Big brother, I’m here! I have not been on the internet for 4-5 days, I have put all of my energy
on working! But each day upon awakening, each day when I’m tired, each day before going to
bed I have always thought about rebooting vigilance. When I was free today I took up the
notebook and a pen and wrote down your pictorial quotes! I have not memorized them all
because many of them require slow digestion! Let’s fight together big brother!!]

This brother from above has been able to reboot steadily nowadays. For one he is willing to
study and has good studying habits, including his note-taking habits, through extracting the
essential thoughts from articles in order to deepen one’s understanding, increasing one’s
absorption rate towards the article. Previously I have observed another brother named Tom who
had an inclination towards studying and summarizing. Summarizing is equivalent to repeated
studying, understanding and thinking, a new realization can be obtained by making a summary.

Page | 179
Actually summarizing is a method for deepening one’s memory. My studying habits also include
making constant summaries, constant refinement and then compiling them into a notebook.
After that I would often flip through and review the notebook, this is how I was able to increase
my awareness step by step.

In this season I have summarized an equation for a successful reboot: successful reboot = high
awareness + strong vigilance.

Brothers who were able to truly reboot certainly possess these two characteristics. How does
one obtain a high level of awareness? There is only one way and that is through constantly
studying and increasing the awareness. There are methods of studying, notetaking is a very
good weapon that we should pick up. Strictly speaking, vigilance is also a part of the awareness.
The reason to why I have made vigilance a separate topic is to emphasize its importance. There
have already been countless feedbacks showing that once the vigilance is relaxed there will be
a relapse, once it is relaxed then we will be eaten by the temptation demon. Therefore, we
should maintain a high level of vigilance during every day of our reboot. Vigilance is like sand in
our hand, as soon as it is relaxed, kidney essence will be lost…

In order to increase awareness, we should absorb the essential thoughts from a wide range of
articles, not just my articles. As long as you think it is a good article, you should try to absorb its
essences. For instance, health cultivating articles, traditional culture articles and other
categories of articles can all be absorbed. You are like a tree, once you have absorbed enough
nutrient, your awareness will become greater, by that time the temptation demon will no longer
be your match.

Let’s talk about the rebooting stabilization period below.

The rebooting stabilization period states that are yearned by many brothers even in their
dreams. Once the state has been reached, you will notice that the “tormenting feeling” is no
more, the number of the day in a streak is no longer important, you will notice that time passes
very quickly without the feeling of torment. Because for the people who enter into the rebooting
stabilization period can basically already defeat the temptation demon, the demon rarely comes
out to harass them. During this stabilizing period, it is adequate to take some time daily to
review the rebooting knowledge in addition to maintaining the vigilance awareness. Of course, if
your level of awareness is high, you don’t have to study rebooting articles daily, once per week
will also do, but one must maintain a high level of vigilance, that is very important. Without the
vigilance awareness, one will be eaten by the temptation demon. No matter if you have
rebooted for 200 days or for several years, you will relapse without the vigilance awareness!

Brothers will then ask, how long does it take before one enters the rebooting stabilizing period?

Some articles have stated 70 days or 3 months. According to my research, the time it takes to
enter into the rebooting stabilizing period differs from person to person. This is because the
speed of awareness progression is different for everybody. For some people their awareness
grows quickly, they might enter the stabilization period within 6 months. For other people,
although they have rebooted for half a year, they do not study and so their awareness level is
very low, they will still relapse repeatedly. If those people fail to raise their awareness, then they
will never enter the stabilization period. The pass to the rebooting stabilization period is the level
of awareness! This is comparable to the English requirement of some companies, such as level
4 or level 6. When your level of awareness has reached a certain level will you be able to enter

Page | 180
into the stabilization period. Otherwise by not studying, the level of awareness will forever
remain low, entering the rebooting stabilization period will be nowhere in sight.

At the time it took me half a year to enter into the rebooting stabilization period. However, I did
not relax my studies during that time, because I thought I had too much to learn, it is still like
that today. Although I understand more today my studies have not ceased. I still want to study
and understand deeper principles. The life that I live now is one of comprehension, constantly
studying and realizing principles.

In determining whether one has entered into the stabilization period, one may observe in the
following way. Normally when one has entered into the stabilization period, temptation demon
rarely makes an appearance, there will be no strong impulse to relapse. As long as vigilance is
not relaxed, relapse will normally not occur. Before you have entered into the rebooting
stabilization period, you would for instance have thoughts of relapsing in over 20 times each day.
When you are in the period you will notice that thoughts of relapse will occur no more than
3 times per day, even 0 thoughts. My state at the moment is 0 thoughts, I have not experienced
impulses to relapse for a very long time.

I would cut out sexual fantization when it has just started before it is formed into an impulse. I
would adhere to 2 words when cutting out sexual fantizations these days: quick and brutal!
Sexual fantization is not to be tolerated, towards it, there is a zero-tolerance attitude, no
compromises at all costs. Another big characteristic about entering into the rebooting
stabilization period is the disappearance of the “suffering feeling”, it is the lack of that enduring
feeling, the feeling of not being able to put up with. One stops to care about the number of days
in a rebooting streak, this is because your rebooting awareness has already completely
exceeded the “number of days” level.

What’s worth paying attention to is that at the beginning of the rebooting process, one will enter
into the desire hibernation period. This period would normally last for around a month. During
this time many people would experience very little sexual fantizations, the desire to relapse is
basically absent. This period is not the rebooting stabilization period, but it is merely a period of
desire hibernation, one must be clear on this. Many people during the desire hibernation period
would become very pleased with themselves, thinking that rebooting is very easy. Once this
period has passed it is followed by the peak relapsing period, this is when your awareness and
determination will be tested.

Lastly to summarize, the sign of entering the rebooting stabilization period is: awareness must
be adequate! If the awareness is not adequate, one will not enter into the stabilization period
even when one is rebooting for over a decade.

Lastly let’s discuss the issue of sperm quality.

Firstly I would like to bring up a few cases:

1. Before marriage there was a year history of intensive masturbation, this caused forceless
ejaculations in the married life. Attempts to have a kid have failed. I went to do a
conventional seminal check and found out that the seminal volume was only 3 ml, there was
no sperm, white and red blood cells were present in the semen. Before my history of
masturbation, my constitution was good. After masturbation my constitution became weaker,
I would often experience waist pains.

Page | 181
2. I started to masturbate when I was around 7-8 years ago. I had scrotum dampness, upon
later examination I had no sperm. The results were the same after multiple examinations. Is
there the hope of gaining sperm? What kind of examinations do I need to do?

3. I have masturbated for 5 years, I have always been repressing it. Once during ejaculation, a
white granule the size of a yellow bean came out. After that I had no sperm upon examination.
Can I be cured? My testis is also very small.

4. One day in the spring of 2001, after I had masturbated once again I felt as if the sky was
suddenly collapsing, shrouded in dizziness. I thought that everything will be good after a couple
of days, but this feeling of dizziness became more serious by each day, I had unbearable hot
flashes throughout my body. I was not married at the time and also I didn’t dare to mention
about masturbation and the associated events to my family. During the spring of 2002, I felt that
my health became progressively worse, the hot flashes were also aggravated. I went to the
hospital for a diagnosis, the finding said that there was a micro genital wart on the head of my
penis. I was extremely afraid and immediately looked for treatment. After the treatment my body
and brain still became increasingly worse. Sometimes my waists aches a lot while standing, my
head was dizzy and I felt like doing nothing, letting my imaginations run wild. Suddenly one day
I felt a loss of sensation in my waist, I could not exert any strength. After having arrived at the
hospital nothing showed up on the diagnosis, the medicine that I was prescribed with were very
expensive. I then went to a street outpatient service, I was prescribed with Renhui Kidney.
Before I was able to finish a box of it I noticed that hot flashes on my body became aggravated.
After that the outpatient doctor prescribed to me his own formula of kidney supplementing TCM
capsules and large amounts of Western medicine in the form of vitamins, Liu Wei Di Huang
Wan, Qi Ju Di Huang Wan etc. The more medicine I took the worse I felt, I was even sweating
during sleep, my memory seemed to have disappeared, I was increasingly not able to apply my
bodily strength, it was a hellish living, I was not interested in anything. In this condition I got
married in the winter of 2003. During intercourse I was unable to perform after minimal activity.
Again I paid a visit to an old TCM doctor. He told me that all the medicine I previous took were
not correct, he prescribed TCM to me for adjustment. Just like that I could not be parted from
TCM. I was constantly taking medicine without seeing any improvement. I could persevere with
premature ejaculation by wearing condoms but things were still not good. After intercourse I felt
as if a layer of skin has been peeled off of me, my body and brain felt very fatigued, especially
my left side of the head felt numb, wrinkled and dull, the same sensations are felt on the back of
my neck. Laboratory tests showed grade A and B sperm at 30%, I have been fertile for 3 years.

5. I have always had the habit of masturbation, it has been several years but I haven’t been
able to change it. Right now I have been married for around 5 years without being able to
produce a child. I still frequently masturbate after I got married, I’m very worried that it is caused
by masturbation.

6. Because I have had a history of heavily masturbating during my teenage years, after
marriage I was diagnosed with weak sperm. There was too few grade A sperm, the live rate is
too low, what can I do?

7. I have always satisfied my needs through masturbation before marriage. Previously I didn’t
know what the consequences will be. I would masturbate in 5 days of a week. Since being
married for a year I have not been able to produce a baby. Afterward I went to get a diagnosis
and it showed that I had weak sperm, I’m ready to faint.

Page | 182
8. I’m a guy, 34 years old, married for 5 years, I have not been able to get a baby all this time. I
went to do a checkup with my spouse and it was found that I had medium grade weak sperm.

9. I’m 20 this year. During the half year I have been cohabitating with my girlfriend she was not
able to get pregnant. I started to masturbate when I was 13 and did it quite frequently, once a
day on average, I have been doing it for 5-6 years. When I was 15 I often had nocturnal
emissions. Now my penis is still the same size as when I was 13, only 8 cm. My Adam’s apple is
not pronounced either, facial hair not that plenty. It feels like I’m still owed a period of time
where I haven’t developed fully. In addition, I’m easily fatigued, aches in the back and the waist,
shuddering from the cold during the winters and sweating a lot during the summer. A while ago I
was at the hospital to check my sperm, there were 3 parameters that wasn’t normal: A grade
sperm 9.78%, B grade 7.68%, PH value 7.0.

10. Masturbating since 13 years old, sometimes frequent, sometimes once every couple of
weeks. After marriage it was discovered that I had severe premature ejaculation, this did
improve in 5 years. Last year since March my morning erections disappeared. Previously my
penis would become erect easily but the firmness was not great. Since I have lost my morning
erections, erections are more difficult to achieve than before. Prior to marriage, I always felt lots
of heat in my body, I would sweat easily, at the least of movement I would sweat all over, after
marriage this became a bit better. My memory is poor, I’m easily fatigued and I’m not
concentrated, oftentimes I experience sore waist, aching back and a dull complexion. I have
caught tuberculosis in 1995, upon examination in 1998, the doctor told me that I have fully
recovered. I work with product design, every day I use the computer quite a lot. Sometimes
when drawing I would sit for 2-3 hours without moving. Upon multiple diagnoses the results
were all dead sperm (0%, after treatment and medication I would sometimes reach 5-10% but
never exceeding 10%. After halting medication I would return to 0%). The rate of malformed
sperm is especially high at 60-80%. Color Doppler imaging have shown mild varicocele.

Masturbation will damage the quality of the sperm, this has been confirmed by Western
medicine. Masturbation may induce urinary tract infection, prostatitis, varicocele, seminal vesicle,
impotence, soft erections, habitual premature ejaculation etc. Once one has contracted
prostatitis, it will inevitably affect sperm negatively. In addition, varicocele will also negatively
affect the quality of the sperm. Of course, infertility does not apply everyone suffering from
prostatitis or varicocele, one needs to look at the seriousness of the condition. Although many
people have chronic prostatitis, when they go and examine the quality of the sperm, they are
still fertile, only that there are lots of malformed and dead sperm. The diagnosis has shown that
the sperm of some brothers is displaying low vitality.

Although some brothers may still be fertile, don’t think that everything is good, because fertility
does not translate to healthy offsprings. Sperm produced under the environment of chronic
prostatitis and varicocele will inevitably be of an inferior quality compared to sperm produced
under normal conditions. The Ministry of Health published [Birth defect prevention report in
China (2012)] has shown, the annual average rate for birth defects in China is roughly 5.6%,
around 900 000 cases. According to the 2007 published estimation for the number of newborn
and rate of birth defects in Chengdu, there are 1200 babies born with defects in Chengdu each
year. The main defects are cleft lip and palate, congenital heart disease, hearing impairment etc.
Everyone is probably aware that the child of Wang Fei and Li Yapeng is born with a cleft lip.
Sexual indulgence without restraint leads to downcasted vigor, fatigue, heart palpitation,
dizziness, sore waist and soft legs, all of these are signs that sexual activities have exceeded

Page | 183
the load of the body. Not only does it make one’s will be depressed, affecting health, but it also
increases the burden on the testis, adversely affects the formation of high-quality sperm,
obstructing eugenics. Although many brothers are still fertile, the quality of their sperm is very
ordinary. Famous TCM physicians in the past have mentioned that the offsprings to people who
indulge in debauchery tend to suffer from premature death, the bodily constitution will also be
poor. Therefore, we should persist in cultivating the health prior to getting married, cultivate the
body well, cultivate the quality of the sperm, in doing so the conditions of eugenics can be
aligned. In doing this one is being responsible for oneself, towards the family and towards the
offsprings.

As soon as problems appear with sperm quality, on one hand, one needs to persist in health
cultivation, this is the basis for the improvement of sperm quality. In addition, one needs active
treatment, the quality of the sperm will slowly return to normal in this way. If you take medicine
while indulging, whether or not the quality of the sperm is able to recover will be met with a
question mark. Even if one temporarily recovers, if one keeps on indulging, it is difficult to
guarantee that one will not fall down once more. The consequences of indulging in debauchery
are really too great, not only will it affect your health but also your offsprings. Therefore, we
must properly reboot and cultivate the health, both for ourselves and our offsprings.

The feedback that I have received from everybody following the recommendation of the 5 books
were quite good. But some brothers have mentioned that they cannot understand Classical
Chinese writing. Actually the books that I have recommended, as long as one has a high school
level of education, reading Classical Chinese writing will not be of a problem. Of course you
may also look at comparable versions that are in plain language. Books on physiognomy will
usually have comparable versions in plain language, TCM related books will not have such
versions. In order to understand TCM books, one will need to have a certain foundation in
Classical Chinese. But there are also exceptions, [Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor] has
versions in plain language. In this season I will continue to recommend 5 books: (Translator’s
note: due to the unavailability of the English versions to some of the below books, I have chosen
to retain the original Chinese titles as listed by Soaring Eagle)

1. [九种体质使用手册], Wang Qizhe, Wangqi is a professional at Beijing University of Chinese


Medicine and tutor for Ph.D. students. This book is quite good, I understood my own type of
physique which allows me to health cultivate myself better.

2. [The Secret], herein lay buried a secret that has been hidden for 2000 years on wealth,
success and health. Ever since the day that humanity has existed, humans have sought after
this secret. This book has also been recommended by the Tudou message board moderator.
The book deals with the law of attraction, actually it is the principle of suggestion from the field
of psychology. If you suggest active contents for yourself, then all of your energy will be directed
towards the active direction. If you suggest yourself with negative and pessimistic contents, you
will then become very negative, the odds for failure will increase this way.

3. [名医类案], composed by Jiang Guan in the Ming dynasty. This is a book on medical cases,
it is a clinical summary of famous physicians in the Ming dynasty, there is an abundant of cases.
I like this book very much. Through reading the cases one will know how people become sick.
When you have learned the causes of the illnesses you will know how to avoid them. Many
TCM cases have mentioned case examples on indulgence in debauchery, in some medical
record books, an example of indulgence in debauchery will appear in every few pages.

Page | 184
Therefore, researching in TCM medical cases is very helpful towards the raising of our
rebooting awareness.

4. [The Talent Code], The Talent Code is about: in order to become a world expert in a field,
you will need roughly 10 000 hours of practice. There are no other ways, if you want to become
successful, then you must spend 10 000 hours. The theory in the book has a sense of
inspiration, myelin is the key to communication, reading, study skills, and to how people are
formed. The concept of myelin is very interesting, I believe those who have read the book will be
familiar to this term.

5. [灸除百病]: When it comes to my physical recovery, moxibustion is indeed the biggest


benefactor, especially towards the improvement of my stomach function and rhinitis,
moxibustion has indeed been very effective. In supporting the Yang, moxibustion is number one.
It is mentioned in the [Canon of the Yellow Emperor]: When the Yang qi is sufficient, there is
longevity, the method of moxibustion is the foremost. The famous medical scientist Dou Cai
from the Song dynasty in [扁鹊心书] believes there are 3 ways of supporting the Yang since
ancient times: moxibustion as the first, pellet medicine as the second, aconite as the third.
Reading thus far, everybody surely thinks that moxibustion is very good. What I want to say is
although moxibustion seems very simple, the principle therein is very deep. Therefore if you
would like to try moxibustion, you had best first study related knowledge and experiences, one
could read books or watch a video about moxibustion. Although moxibustion is good, it does
produce smoke and easily gives rise to blisters, one needs to pay attention to these aspects. By
doing more reading and studying one may harmonize these two problems. By correctly applying
moxibustion, your body will recover quicker and better. I have personally experienced
moxibustion for over 2 years, my understanding is pretty good in this area. Rebooting is one
aspect, how to cultivate the health is equally important. Many brothers have still not recovered
optimally after having rebooted for over a year, the reality is that they have fared poorly in health
cultivation. Many people lack health cultivation awareness altogether, they are still sitting for
long durations, staying up during the night and not exercising. Therefore, if everybody wants to
recover quicker and better, my advice is to put enough effort into health cultivation, strive to
increase one’s health cultivation awareness.

Season 33 [Soaring Eagle experience: masturbating blood, dizziness
and headache following masturbation, relapse after nocturnal
emission]

Foreword:

Lately the weather has become cold, more brothers are reporting repeated symptoms.
Repeated symptom on chronic prostatitis is quite common, such as frequent urination during the
night, urgent urination and waiting to urinate, other brothers have encountered difficulties in
sleeping, increased nocturnal emission etc. These issues are intricately connected with a lower
temperature, with a decrease in temperature, the chances of encountering repeated symptoms
from various diseases will increase greatly. Due to “heaven and man corresponding”, therefore
when changes are taking place in nature, people should also make suitable adjustments in their
house and in the diet to maintain their physical strength, reach a balance between Ying & Yang,
qi and blood, maintaining the health. Therefore I advise everybody to pay attention in keeping
warm, health cultivation, forming good resting and dietary habits, avoid over fatigue, allow one’s
body to adjust to changes in the weather as soon as possible.

If the repeated symptoms following changes in the weather are not serious, there is no need to
seek the doctor. Normally by resting for a couple of days, keeping up with nutrition, do some
moderate exercises, the symptoms will slowly disappear, there is no need to worry.

Everybody knows that illnesses are made easier by the winter cold. However they do not know
that if the body is not properly nurtured during winter, illnesses will come easier during the
spring. [Inner Canons of the Yellow Emperor]: “If essence is not conserved in the winter,
sickness in the spring will be inevitable” mentions the said principle. TCM believes that
exogenous cold most easily injures the kidney Yang. Therefore, to resist the cold, one must
cultivate the kidneys. Otherwise, the immunity of the body will be affected by the deficiency in
the kidneys, easily giving rise to illnesses. From the perspective of TCM, essence, qi and spirit
are the most important driving forces of life, essence in particular being the foundation.
Therefore “The person who is good at preserving the essence is prone to lead a long life, the
person who excessively damages the essences will meet an early decline”. When the winter
season comes, I advise all brothers to pay attention to kidney cultivation in particular, do not
relapse to the best of your ability, otherwise there is a strong chance that it will affect your health
in the coming year.

“The 3 months of the winter acts as storage. Water and ground freezes, do not disturb the yang.
Retire early and arise late, wait for the sun to go up. Let emotions to barely exist, as if keeping a
secret, an own understanding. Keep distance from the cold and approach warmth, do not shed
through the skin and thus allowing the Yang qi to expel. Winter qi is as mentioned, the
cultivation of storage; by doing the opposite the kidneys are injured, weakness follows in the
spring, there will be nothing for the Yang qi to grow from due to the lack of Ying qi.” (Translator’s
note: please allow for mistakes in the above translation. As far as I’m concerned there is yet any
English translations to the original Chinese texts. I have sought help from 2 capable native
Chinese speakers for a more accurate understanding, the above translation has been carried
out to the best of my ability, although the quality is still below my satisfaction)

The above paragraph comes from [黄帝内经四气调神大论], in plain language it means: Winter is
the Yang qi storage season. (Trees and plants are withering, the seeds are buried under ice and

Page | 186
snow. The plants are withering, the animals are hibernating, all the life forms on the ground is
nowhere to be seen. Ice is also formed on the water surface, this is “storage”). People need to
sleep earlier and get up later, i.e. waiting for the sun to have risen before getting up. The will of
a person also needs to resemble hibernation, as if tucked away. Pay attention to keeping warm,
do not expose the skin and hence letting out the Yang qi. This is being compliant to the winter,
the way of storage cultivation. Going the opposite direction will injure the kidneys (damage to
kidney water is the cause of the loss of wood in the liver, liver governs the tendons, if the liver
wood is not growing, the tendons lose their support), the hands and the feet easily weakens
during spring, the growth of the Yang qi will become affected.

In the five internal organs, the kidneys govern the water, the corresponding season is winter.
The foundation of the kidneys is determined prenatally, it is the root of life, enough Ying needs
to be stored in order to replenish the Yang. The kidneys stores the essence, essence ought to
be stored and not to be expelled, it has the characteristic of hibernation and storage.

It is said therefore that when winter arrives, we should to a larger extent to not relapse, desire
should be shelved, putting ourselves in a state of hibernation, properly storing the essence, “the
person who is adept at health cultivation inevitably believes in storage”. During winter one
should pay even closer attention to “the way of storage cultivation”. If you repeatedly relapse
during the winter, when spring comes, your spirit will be very decadent, your resistance towards
diseases will be lowered and diseases will easily arise.

Recently there are brothers mentioning about repeated symptoms in the skin. The face is the
mirror to the five internal organs, repeated symptoms in the skin are quite common, this
especially applies to brothers who are not fond of exercising, who sits in front of a computer
screen for long stretches of time, long-term exposure towards the computer monitor will lead to
“monitor face”. Even if you have not relapsed your skin will still be of a poor condition, due to
radiation from the computer in addition to being in a state of long duration sitting and long
duration gazing, it is therefore not favorable to the adjustments of internal secretions, an
improvement in the skin will be difficult to come by. Furthermore, factors which induce repeated
symptoms in the skin include nocturnal emission, fatigue, overexposure to sunshine, eating
volatile food (Translator’s note: this is a Chinese term, volatile term include food such as fungus,
certain types of fish, meat and vegetables. Volatile food has the properly of inducing or
aggravating certain illnesses), staying up during the night, seasonal factors etc. Diet directly
affects the skin, eating volatile food, greasy and spicy food all may lead to skin problems.
Therefore, when rebooting we should try to keep a light diet and then do more moderate
exercises, this will reduce repeated symptoms for the skin. Back when I had persisted in doing
aerobic exercises for a while, I was able to feel clear improvements in the quality of my skin; the
facial skin felt smooth. Previously I sat for long periods of time without moving while facing a
computer screen, my face felt rough, the complexion was dull, oil and acne outbreaks were
common. Therefore, moderate aerobic exercises are helpful for the improvement of skin quality.
Everybody please emphasize “moving cultivation”, this is quite beneficial to the improvement in
skin quality.

I want to revisit the issue of the stretched sensation from kidney strengthening exercises. If you
are unable to find the stretched sensation coming from the rear side of the thighs, then the
benefits from the kidney strengthening exercises will be very limited. By doing the movement
properly, finding that stretch sensation can the benefits of the exercise be unleashed. Many
brothers have asked about how to find that stretched sensation and where is it really located?
Actually the stretch sensation from the kidney strengthening exercises is mainly found at the

Page | 187
rear side of the thighs, secondly it is found on the side of the knees, lastly on the calves. The
sensation is relatively easily felt on the side of the knees and on the calves. Finding the
sensation on the rear side of the thighs is comparatively more difficult. This feeling can be found
through 2 ways, one is through feeling; whether or not the stretch sensation is felt at the rear
side of the thighs. The other way is through touching. Whether or not there is tension, it can be
felt. Sometimes one might objectively not feel much, but upon the touch it feels tense, feeling as
elongated and tightened, this will also do. By correctly finding the tightening feeling and
intensifying it, the kidney strengthening exercise has been properly performed. In rebooting one
must pass the level of frequent nocturnal emissions, in this way the body will have a guarantee
towards recovery. Yet there are many factors which induce frequent nocturnal emissions, I have
summarized over a dozen of such factors, this has been written about in previous articles,
everyone may have a look. It is also unusually important to avoid other factors for inducing
nocturnal emissions.

We will enter into the main topic below.

In this season we will talk about the issues of masturbating blood, dizziness and headache
following masturbation, relapse after nocturnal emission in detail.

Senior brothers who frequent the rebooting forums will know that there is often posts about
masturbating blood. Every couple of days there will be these kinds of posts, sometimes they
even appear consecutively. Masturbating blood easily causes the mind to panic, some brother
has said “a major thing has occurred”, some say that they are “genuinely afraid”. Masturbating
blood should be a relatively common occurrence, many brothers are in the state of ignorance,
controlled by their addictions and masturbates like crazy. This type of crazy indulgence in
masturbation has actually already caused latent damage to the body, symptoms will sooner or
later appear, only that the circumstance of masturbating blood causes a rather large
psychological impact for the sufferer. This in reality is not a bad thing, this will allow him to
speedily wake up and give birth to the thought of rebooting. There is a saying in economics:
crisis causes restraint, a forced restraint. If there is no blood in masturbating, perhaps he will
continue to be addicted, running all the way towards the path to self-ruin.

Let’s look at a few cases on masturbating blood:

1. Yesterday I relapsed and masturbated 3 times. The first ejaculation was very normal, the
second time there was little semen, there were threads of blood in it, I became very afraid.
Today I wanted to see if there is blood in the semen, after masturbating for a while I could
not ejaculate, I didn’t dare to force it, what’s going on here? Requesting urgent help! I’m
suffering right now! Truly regretting!

2. While ejaculating during masturbation, the first ejaculation was milky white, the latter 3 drops
were slightly red. The day before I had also masturbated! A while ago there was a day when I
had a muddled feeling of pain in my belly. When I was a teen I once had epididymitis, it was
cured by medicines.

3. Oh my god! I masturbated blood, light red in color, requesting urgent help! What do I do? I’m
not in pain but there is blood!

Page | 188
4. 4 days ago there was a lot of blood during masturbation. 2 days ago when I ejaculated for
the second time, the semen was slightly red. I’m 19 this year, normally I masturbate quite
frequently (trying to get rid of it now), it’s very scary to run into this kind of condition.

5. Genuinely afraid! I don’t dare to masturbate again, there is another chunk of blood in the
semen. Am I to be without descendants?! I have really masturbated blood, really afraid. In the
beginning the blood chunk seemed to be solid, I thought it wasn’t blood, I squeezed it with my
fingers and it fell apart, it was blood. I don’t ever dare to masturbate again, everyone fends for
yourself!

6. I have always resisted ejaculation, previously the semen was transparent, now what comes
out is bloody semen. What’s going on here? Anxious!

7. I have masturbated for many years very frequently, but recently when I masturbated there
were threads of blood. I don’t know if this is because I have masturbated and so have
contracted some disease, what do I do! What’s causing the threads of blood to appear in the
semen? What should I do?

According to my research, normally if one masturbates consecutively for a couple of days or


masturbates multiple times within the same day, this phenomenon will easily arise, it is over-
masturbation. The chances for symptoms to arise following consecutive masturbation is very
high, even if one does not masturbate blood, the possibility of running into other symptoms is
extremely high. How much kidney essence is there for you to masturbate? Even if your
constitution is very good, long-term addiction to masturbation will give rise to symptoms. When
blood appears in semen it is called blood semen. The reason for blood semen is normally
considered to be inflammation or calculus issue such as prostatitis, seminal vesicle, urinary tract
infection, epididymitis, varicocele, prostate stone, urethral bladder stones. Of course there are
other causes for blood semen, given that everybody is quite young, normally, the possibility of
inflammation or calculus are considered with the chances for inflammation being greater. If one
is still worried, one may go to the hospital for a diagnosis. When blood semen appears, don’t
panic too much but be afraid to injure the kidneys. Blood semen is the body given you signal,
telling you to stop masturbating, it is time to pull back. Normally when blood semen appears, a
person should know it is time to exercise restraint, to stop with the act. If you continue to go
against the wind and masturbate then you are really fed up with living.

In the below let’s talk about dizziness and headache following masturbation.

TCM: the kidneys are connected to the brain in the above.

The greatest number of acupoints are found on the head and neck region of the human body, a
total of 76 which is 21% of the total 361 number of acupoints. The head houses the brain which
is transformed from kidney essence, it is governed by the kidneys. The brain is the hub of the
nerves, is the highest command in managing the entire bodily movement, feeling, language and
the movements of the internal organs. The face is a reflection of the internal organs, it is
connected by the meridians and opened by the transformation of qi. There are 14 meridian
nerves in the human body, there is the 3 hand yang meridians, the 8 meridians from the yang
channels of the foot, conception and governing vessels follows an upward path and terminates
at the face. Ancient TCM physicians consider: “The head is the meeting point of all the Yang,
astuteness is housed in the brain, it is also the place of the marrow sea. The essences of the

Page | 189
five internal organs reside in the blood, the Yang of the six bowels resides in the qi, all is
concentrated in the head.”

A very obvious truth is: masturbation injures the brain, masturbation damages the head! In this
season we will talk about dizziness and headache following masturbation.

I will share a few cases below:

1. Soaring Eagle big brother, hello. I should say that I have already masturbated for 20 years. I
remember ever since I became sensible I liked to play with my little penis. Between 2009-2010 I
have exchanged obscene text messages with a girl daily, in other words I was constantly
sexually fantasizing. And in November of 2010 my body started to experience serious
headaches, up until today the headache is still very serious. I am taking Chinese herbal
medicine during all this time, at the same time it is as you said; in taking on one end while
shedding through the other end. Furthermore, up until May of this year I’m still masturbating,
although I know that the problem was caused by masturbation and sexual fantization. After that,
I made up my mind to never masturbate again. At the same time I was able to do what I said I
would do, but no matter what I have not been able to conquer sexual fantization. I noticed that
as soon as I’m thinking about my penis, liquid will flow out of it, it would happen when I’m
thinking about the words masturbation and sexual fantization. I feel that I have already gone
mad. Right now my eyes are very dull, my head is very dizzy, the dizziness never gets better,
my eyes are constantly drowsy.

2. Previously following masturbation, my head would often hurt, the head was dizzy, the entire
body felt light as a feather as if having taken alcohol. In addition, my memory is very poor, I’m
forgetting things, my level of comprehension is low and my reaction is slow in the brain. Due to
this, a while ago I went to the hospital to do brain imaging. They said that I had neurasthenia
and autonomic disorders. I have also taken Liu Wei Di Huang Wan, I didn’t feel any effect from
taking it. I’m afraid, right now I don’t dare to masturbate.

3. I have been masturbating long term, recently after a session I felt dizziness and headache,
blurred vision, sleepiness, yellow urine with a heavy odor. When it comes to headache it is the
temple and the back of the neck hurting interchangeably, hurting in one place for a while before
switching to the other place. The swelling pain in my eyes doesn’t allow me to look at one place
for too long. It is very painful to browse the internet, I feel as if my eyes cannot open and want to
shut them.

4. I have masturbated ever since elementary school. Now I’m in college, my head is always
drowsy, I feel as if there is a big iron ball inside my head (not exaggerating). During midnight my
kidneys would always beat. My four limbs are without strength, I cannot play basketball
anymore, ack! It is affecting my studies and it’s also uncomfortable, somebody come and help
me!

5. I’m turning 22 this year and have been masturbating quite frequently for several years. In
recent years after I masturbate, I would immediately feel dryness and thirst in my mouth. My
waist aches like crazy and is a bit painful, it has not faded in several days. Since a week ago,
the back of the head felt dizzy like crazy. When I’m feeling particularly dizzy I would go and lie
down for a while, when I get up I would feel quite awake, after a few hours I would feel dizzy
once more. I suffer from a lot of internal heat and during the night I’m unable to sleep.
Nowadays I feel dizziness at the back of my head every day, I don’t have the mood nor the

Page | 190
strength, I’m unable to work. I have gone to see the doctor and have taken medicine without use,
save me!!! If I go on like this I don’t want to live, I always feel as if something is pressing
towards the back of my neck. I have not seen any effects from taking Liu Wei Di Huang Wan
and from taking soothing and brain supplementing medicine! I’m still feeling dizzy. The doctor
has applied scraping (TCM) on me, my entire body is blackish red, there is a lot of internal heat.
I still feel dizzy like crazy, scraping didn’t help. I’m afraid to tell the doctor that it is caused by
masturbation. I’m really suffering, what can I do to get better, it’s really uncomfortable, save me!

The cases that I currently have which show dizziness and headache following masturbating is
very many, masturbation hurts the head, at first it damages the brain power, after a certain
degree of damage has been sustained there may be dizziness and headache. If your condition
of dizziness and headache is persistent then go see a doctor, normally the diagnosis will be
neurasthenia or autonomic disorders, the bottom line is that there are problems with the nerves.
In my article from season 30 I have specifically talked about neurosis, masturbation will indeed
damage the nerves, but a certain degree of damage will need to have been sustained before
neurosis appears. If you stay up during the night, sit for long stretches of time and masturbates
like crazy, then the chances of getting neurosis will be quite high. In addition, some brothers
have a naturally poor constitution, their body can withstand even less masturbation and cannot
afford to become injured.

When dizziness and headache appears, one must be persistent in rebooting followed by active
treatment, slow recovery towards normal will be possible in this way. I have encountered both
dizziness and headache, roughly after a half year of rebooting and health cultivation, I slowly got
better. During that time I often did standing qigong, Six Letters Formula qigong and moxibustion,
it is then followed by active exercise. In the beginning I was not able to exercise much due to
headache and so I would walk quickly, slowly, the body recovered. Indeed, the speed to which
disease leaves the body is comparable to spinning silk, the recovery is made thread by thread.
The normal feeling upon recovery is like crawling back into the world from hell. From there on I
greatly treasured this hard to come by a feeling of being healthy.

Health is recovered through cultivation, moral cultivation, Taoist cultivation, health cultivation, in
addition to actively exercising. In reality, active treatment is the smaller part of the whole picture,
the bigger part is made up of moral cultivation, Taoist cultivation and health cultivation. 30%
treatment, 70% maintenance. We need to learn to become qualified patients ourselves,
otherwise, wishing to recover while relying on doctor and medicines is not realistic, neurosis is
not like having a cold after all. Shedding on one hand while treating with the other hand, dare
one ask where the path lies towards recovery?

Lastly let’s talk about the issue of relapsing following nocturnal emission.

First I will present a case:

[I have been rebooting for a year, lately the results have been quite good but following nocturnal
emission my desire is very very strong. And in my mind I’m very distressed, I would masturbate,
a while later I have the thought of dying, how can I not relapse following nocturnal emission?]

Relapsing after having a nocturnal emission is quite common, I have summarized this form of
relapse. The following expressions easily appear following nocturnal emissions:

Page | 191
1. The mood becomes worse, when kidney essence is lost, changes will take place in the
mood, the behavior of being impatient and easily angered will appear. There will also be the
feeling of being defeated and discouraged. Of course, nocturnal emission does not count
towards relapse, there is no need to feel defeated. As long as one does not suffer from
frequent nocturnal emissions, there is nothing to worry about.

2. Returning to the state of hyperactivity in the Yang due to Ying deficiency. Following
nocturnal emission, desire will be awakened, it will become “restless”. If one does not raise the
level of vigilance at this stage it will be extremely easy to relapse.

3. Repeated symptoms, nocturnal emission also injures the body, even greater injuries comes
from frequent emissions. Normally following nocturnal emissions, symptoms will temporarily
repeat themselves, they will be alleviated or even disappear following a few days of rest.

We must correctly recognize the phenomenon of relapsing following nocturnal emissions and
correctly face the issue. Pay attention at all cost to mood management and raising the vigilance
after nocturnal emission in order to avoid relapses. Every time following a nocturnal emission I
would immediately repent, this is because every time I would feel the emerging desire,
repenting during this moment will have the effect of eliminating desire. Every time I have a
nocturnal emission my vigilance would increase because it is very easy to relapse at this time. I
have repeatedly emphasized the importance of emotional management many times. The
brother from the case is not managing his emotions sufficiently well, following relapse he
became distressed. At this time one must immediately adjust the mood, make more active and
positive suggestions to oneself and let oneself remain in the calm state of peace of mind. In
addition, one needs to increase the vigilance awareness, relapses following nocturnal emissions
can be avoided this way.

In this season I will continue to recommend 5 books:

1. [Śūraṃgama Sūtra]: the contents of the Śūraṃgama Sūtra helps people to become
enlightened by virtue of knowledge, the ancients have once put in poems: “ever since reading
Śūraṃgama sūtra, no longer reads garbage books from the world!”. The saying goes that the
Lotus Sutra is the way to Buddhahood, Śūraṃgama Sūtra opens the wisdom, in order to
deepen the Buddha wisdom, the Śūraṃgama Sūtra is a must read. I have read the Śūraṃgama
Sūtra many times, a new understanding is gained in every reading. In it, continence has also
been mentioned in addition to the 4 kinds of tranquility. Brothers with Buddhist karma tend not to
miss this book, they may read the corresponding translated version of the book in everyday
language.

2. [黄帝内经二十四节气养生法]: authored by Wang Wei. This book guides us in letting nature


take its course and teaches us the 24 solar terms health and essence cultivation. This book
builds upon the [Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor], it incorporates the different characteristics
of the 24 solar terms, goes through deep and detailed analysis, it points out the key points and
methods in health cultivation that one needs to pay attention to within the 24 solar terms of a
year. I like this book very much, from it I have learned much about health cultivation, it has also
opened my eyes.

3. [王晨霞掌纹诊病]: Health secrets are hidden in the prints of the palms. The 14 mysterious
lines and the 8 different kinds of patterns that you don’t know about reveal the secret source of
your body. When thinking about palm prints, everybody surely thinks about fortune telling.

Page | 192
Actually there are similarities between palm print consultation and numerology, although the
modern study of palm print consultation is more scientific. The Western scientific community has
actually since long time ago researched into the relationship between palm prints and the bodily
health. Therefore, modern palm print consultation is quite scientific, everyone may take a look in
this book, it is a wonder book. Youku has 32 episodes on 王晨霞, everyone may take a look,
one may also purchase the book. I have watched the videos and read the book, they are very
good, therefore I’m recommending palm print consultation to everyone. Many brothers regard
the fingernail crescent as a sign of bodily health. Actually the 4 lines in the palm prints can also
be used to determine the state of the health, this is because the 4 lines are the lines of health.
Once everybody has studied it they will understand.

4. [人体的春夏秋冬], written by 史赞华. 王晨霞 was born into a Chinese medicine family and is
a well-known physician from Qilu. He is well read, well versed in the medical classics, good at
both TCM and Western medicine, possessing deep knowledge in health cultivation and unique
insights. Liver as spring, emphasize the cultivation of “birth”, heart as spring, emphasize the
cultivation of “growth”; lung as autumn, emphasize the cultivation of “collection”; kidneys as
winter, emphasize the cultivation of storage. [Inner Canons of the Yellow Emperor]: names: “the
person who is adept at health cultivation inevitably believes in storage”. Cultivating the health is
lesser compared to the cultivation of storage. The old TCM doctor has given all in order to teach
the cultivation secrets of TCM, helping people to arouse their own power of healing. This book
explains health cultivation from the perspective of the four seasons, it is very good, I review this
book often.

5. [志愿军老兵回忆录], written by 袁永生. This book can greatly encourage you, it may provide
one with strong psychological motivation. It is like a retired veteran who has lived through many
changes, telling you about the smoke and fire from the war that has taken place. Normally I’m a
calm and low-key person, but reading this books still makes me feel very excited. The stories
told within is able to pierce the soul, after having read the book I feel charged with power, it is a
strong spiritual tonic and occupies an important place in my heart.

Season 34 [Soaring Eagle experience: 5 case studies, directly looking
at premature ejaculation, conclusion on premature ejaculation]

Let’s analyze 5 cases:

1. [Brother Soaring Eagle! I have had the habit of masturbation for several years, up until now I
have not been able to get rid of it! All of the symptoms except for hair loss are present, ack!
What should I do! Please instruct me big brother! I have read all of your articles but I’m still
unable to get rid of masturbation! I’m almost a wasted person! When winter arrives in particular,
the back of my hand and my wrists are especially dry, they are very easy cracked, there’s blood!
My record streak is 45 days! After that I would relapse like crazy! I even have thoughts of
wanting to die!]

Analysis: Up until now, out of the 1000+ brothers that I have chatted with, those who are able to
completely reboot upon first coming into contact with rebooting articles are extremely few. Only
those brothers with good karma, strong study awareness and high realization were able to do it.
The rebooting forums is like a big class with tens of thousands of students, everybody is
studying rebooting articles, there is also the classification of good and poor students. For the
vast majority of the brothers, in order to succeed, one can say that they must walk through the
path of relapse. It is not scary to relapse, relapsing is to pay the tuition in essence. One should
not pay the essence tuition in vain. After relapsing, one must summarize the lessons learned,
repent more, introspect the areas in which one is deficient in, only by doing this can one reboot
better and smarter. To relapse this time is for a better reboot next time, one needs to constantly
perfect oneself, summarize and introspect. Let realization to continuously grow, by persisting in
this manner can one completely reboot. The troubles that this brother is experiencing should be
quite universal. I have summarized 3 articles as to why studying rebooting articles is not enough,
they are found below:

(1) There are problems with the method of studying. A good study habit allows for a faster
increase in studying efficiency, just like listening to a lecture, I’m asking you have you listened?
You say that you have listened. Then I ask you, what did the teacher say? You can’t remember
anything clearly. The words enter the left ear and exits from the right ear. When the studying
efficiency is low, the absorption rate will be too low. When studying rebooting articles we must
increase the absorption rate. I recommend taking more notes, write down the experiences and
contemplate more. Then make a goal for yourself every day, such as writing down 10 rebooting
knowledge daily. These 10 rebooting knowledge comes from rebooting articles, whichever
sentence you think is good you write it down. Write down 10 sentences every day, then take the
initiatives to memorize these 10 sentences, memorize them for real. There are 30 days in a
month, that is 300 lines of rebooting knowledge. Repeatedly read, repeatedly memorize,
increase the absorption rate, the increase in realization will be fast this way. Every brother
should have their own rebooting notebook. Review the old in order to learn the new, read
repeatedly, in every reading you will have new rewards.

(2) A decrease in brain power. The emergence of decreased brain power among brothers is
very commonly seen, due to decreased brain power, this leads to a low studying efficiency.
Many brothers lack determination, their memory and concentration are all very poor, some
people even experience drowsiness. The conditions for studying under these circumstances is
quite poor. I recommend these brothers to persist in rebooting for a while, exercise actively,

Page | 194
keep up with the nutrition, wait until the brain power has recovered somewhat and then start to
thoroughly study rebooting articles.

(3) The level of realization is inadequate. Many brothers have gotten the correct general
bearing, they put in a lot of efforts into studying rebooting articles. But there is a process
involved in the increase of realization, one cannot get there in one step, it is a process of
unceasing persistence. Your realization is increasing, but if it is not strong enough to withstand
the temptation demon then you will still relapse. Just like when your level of realization rises
from level 15 to level 50 through studying rebooting articles, but the temptation demon is at level
100, at this level, there is still the chance of relapsing. Only by constantly studying and gaining
true enlightenment can your realization receive a leap in substance. When your realization is
powerful, defeating the temptation demon will not be an issue.

2. [Brother Soaring Eagle, I’m very depressed, whenever it’s time to rest during the weekend
the desire for sexual fantization is stronger than normal, I’m always relapsing during the
weekends! What should I do? How do I get rid of sexual fantization from my head? I have a
hard time reflecting on repulsiveness! I’m genuinely seeking help!]

Answer: your current problem is due to shallowness in determination. During the weekend the
temptation demon comes out to pick at you, if your realization and determination are not strong
then it is very easy to relapse. I recommend studying more in order to increase realization,
summarize more and memorize more rhymes for sexual fantization. Keep on fighting!

Analysis: I have specifically summarized the condition of weekend relapses in the season about
the different variants of relapses, this is a very common form of relapse. For students in
particular, weekend relapses are as common as everyday food. To change this condition, one
must first become aware of weekend relapse and then raise the vigilance during weekends in
particular, constantly guarding oneself, pornographic landmines are everywhere on the internet,
one needs to be extra careful. Whenever weekend comes there will be “demon tests”, the
temptation demon will come and test you, if the test is passed one may level up, failing the test
is to relapse. After relapsing one needs to summarize more of the lessons learned, study more
to increase the level of realization, gradually, when there is enough determination, weekend
relapse will automatically cease to be.

3. [Yesterday I switched to a thicker blanket, lying on man back resulted in nocturnal


emission… it has only been some 20 days since I had one, my blanket is too thick, I had an
ominous hunch before using it]

Analysis: TCM: the essence of the five internal organs resides in the kidneys, heat leads to the
discharge of essence. Covering oneself with a thick blanket or with a blanket that has been
baking under the sun may under both cases lead to nocturnal emission. There are lots of cases
in this area, many brothers have reported this. Normally there are 2 explanations for the
discharge of essence due to heat, the first is that the person suffering from heat will sweat, he
who sweats also loses essence qi, the essence is lost through the form of sweat. The other
explanation is that over-temperature will stimulate the kidney essence, leading to essence
losing its position, nocturnal emission then takes place during the night. Many people don’t
know about the second explanation, only those with deep experience will possibly understand. I
very much emphasize experience, if you lack experience, then what you read in the books will
only leave a shallow impression in the brain, the impressions are not deep, if you have been
bitten by a snake, you will never forget it as long as you live. What’s important here is that heat

Page | 195
leads to the discharge of essence, the heat here means over-heat. Not only being covered by
thick blanket lead to nocturnal emission, by soaking the feet with water that is too hot will also
lead to the same result. Everybody should pay more attention to this area. There are several
dozen causes to nocturnal emission, I have specifically summarized this in my previous article.
Frequent nocturnal emission is a hard threshold, it must be passed, if it cannot be conquered
then recovery will be near impossible. Frequent emission alone by itself may lead to many
illnesses. In order for the body to recover better, it needs a stable and even a low rate of
emissions.

4. [Big brother Soaring Eagle, I’m a high school senior. Because I didn’t know any better I
started to masturbate since year 1 of middle school, up until the 1st of May I was diagnosed with
a mild form of tuberculosis. Today I’m still taking medicines daily, I faintly sense that it’s got to
have something to do with masturbation. Unintentionally, I discovered the rebooting forums
while surfing on my cell phone and so I started to reboot since 1st of August, although in
between periods I have often sexual fantasized, finally on the 30th of September I had a relapse.
Ever since that date, I readjusted my mentality and sexual fantasies decreased, maybe it is due
to my busy schedule during year 3 of high school, my entire focus was on studying. We had
midterm exams yesterday and today, yesterday I was full of vitality, this lasted up until this
morning when I had a nocturnal emission, during the morning I clearly felt my head was slowing
down in addition to being tired. Moreover, when showering in recent days, the area below my
testis and between my legs would always itch, I have the urge to scratch it, I would like to ask
big brother Soaring Eagle on what the matter is? Is it normal that I have nocturnal emissions?
Be sure to reply once you have read it, I’m still new and don’t know much, I’m eternally grateful!

Answer: If nocturnal emission doesn’t happen frequently, it’s not a big problem. But you have
already been injured, one emission can cause repeated symptoms, although by resting for 2
days normally, the body will be able to gradually recover. As to the issue of itchiness, my advice
is to pay attention to cleanliness, if the issue persists then one may go to the hospital to obtain
some lotion, this is not a big issue. Let me tell you again about the relationship between the
kidneys and the lung. TCM: the lungs give birth to water, kidneys are the organs which govern
water; the lungs exhale air, the kidneys inhales air. In TCM theory, the lungs and the kidneys
operate breathing and fluid metabolism. The interconnectedness of the meridians and the
theory of the five elements where “the child is affected by the sick mother” and “the mother is
affected by the sick child” are intricately connected. Western medicine has discovered that the
lungs and the kidneys are breathing. There is a compensation mechanism between the pH
balance of water and electrolytes versus the aspect of the primary and secondary nature of the
disease. The importance of the mutually influencing relationship is demonstrated in the
occurrence and metamorphosis in obstructive emphysema, uremia, and other illnesses.

Analysis: Masturbation is able to affect the lungs when damages have been sustained to a
certain degree and under the combined effect of other factors, sickness with the lungs may
appear. The lungs are connected to the nose, being addicted to masturbation easily leads to
rhinitis or aggravates rhinitis. Some brothers have reported pneumothorax in the rebooting
forums. If you encounter pneumothorax following masturbation, then this is to some extent
related to masturbation. Masturbation leads to a deficiency in the kidneys, kidney deficiency
affects the lungs. If other factors are stimulated then the pneumothorax may be induced.
Masturbation will lead to a vast decline in the immune system, the chances of catching illnesses
will be greatly increased.

Page | 196
5. [A person on the floor below has been playing cucurbit for an entire noon, I actually relapsed
due to an irritable mood, I still have an exam to take! Regretting!]

Analysis: the form of relapse that this brother has suffered is relapsing due to emotions. Not
only does an irritable mood makes relapse easier, but other negative moods will also all easily
lead to relapse. An example is following an argument between mom and dad, following a break
up with the girlfriend, these all may lead to relapses. Of course, there are other factors that may
lead to relapses such as boredom and over-excitement. In the process of researching into the
behavior of masturbation, I have from very early on realized the importance of emotional
management due to the large number of cases displaying an obvious reality: emotions will
induce relapses. I have had a lot of experiences in this area and therefore I have always
emphasized emotional management. When negative emotions arise, I try my best to give myself
positive suggestions, allowing myself to keep a calm state of mind, this is exceptionally
important. Everybody should also know about the different forms of relapses, I have written a
season about it, by familiarizing oneself with different forms of relapses can one avoid relapsing
under a particular circumstance. Actually the issue of nocturnal emissions works in the same
way. One should understand dozen of emission inducing factors, after that can relapses be
better avoided.

In the below let’s talk about the issue of premature ejaculation.

Premature ejaculation is an issue that many brothers pay attention to, we will talk more about it
in this season, first let’s take a look at 2 cases:

[Case analysis]

Case 1: Previously I had the habit of masturbation, I’ve had it for several years. Right now I
would ejaculate within a minute of making love, sometimes ejaculation happens upon contact.

Case 2: I have prostatitis, the main symptom is difficulty in urinating. Previously I have also had
scrotum dampness, other symptoms are quite mild. Most importantly is premature ejaculation. I
feel like I’ve had it since around 20 years old. I’m 28 this year, already married, prior to marriage
I had undergone foreskin surgery. I had the habit of masturbating, my love sessions are very
short, I cannot last more than 1-2 minutes, my premature ejaculation is quite serious, I’m unable
to control it.

[The classification of premature ejaculation severity]

Mild premature ejaculation: 1-3 minutes


Medium premature ejaculation: less than 1 minute
Severe premature ejaculation: ejaculation before penetration

[Cause explanation by TCM]

Male premature ejaculation, the emergence of impotence is mostly caused by sexual


indulgences or mistaken masturbation during youth, leading to a decline of fire from the gate of
life and weakened essence; if the thoughts are depressed, the heart and the lungs will be
damaged; if the kidneys are damaged due to fright, this also causes damp-heat to flow down to
the urinary bladder, a slacken penis in atrophy, but the main reason of the atrophy is due to
kidney yang weakness. The yang in the kidneys is the source to the yang qi of the whole body,

Page | 197
it takes shape in warmth, evaporates and transforms fluid, promotes the development and the
function of the sexual organ. Kidney yang deficiency leads to the loss of function in keeping
warm and in the transformation of qi in the body. Due to the above, the fear of cold and cold
limbs arises as well as the decline of sexual function. Therefore, when seeing a man suffering
from impotence and unable to erect or keep firm, he is further accompanied with a headache,
dizziness, sore waist and legs, heart palpitations, insomnia, pale complexion, lack of depressed
vigor and lacking in vitality.

[The danger from premature ejaculation]

1. Heavy psychological burden: after one has premature ejaculation, the male unavoidably
takes on an overload of psychological pressure. Simultaneously, one is constantly veiled
under the shadow of the disease, work and life are greatly affected.
2. Causing a rupture in the relationship between the married couple: premature ejaculation
doesn’t allow for a normal sex life and causes rupture of emotions. According to incomplete
statistics, divorces and breakups due to male premature ejaculation take up a large portion
of the total number.
3. Disadvantageous to male fertility: commonly seen symptoms of premature ejaculation is a
short erection duration, barely able to finish in bed. The body of the sufferer is in a state of
dishealth with poor sperm quality and not being able to guarantee healthy offsprings.

[Masturbation will damage sexual function]

There are many reported symptoms of damaged sexual function due to masturbation such as
premature ejaculation, soft erection, short duration erection and impotence as the main
examples. When enough damage has been sustained because of masturbation, the evil fruits of
this act will naturally become apparent.

[Premature ejaculation inducing factors]

Premature ejaculation inducing factors can be grouped into organic (mainly caused by
prostatitis and similar diseases) and non-organic (psychological, habitual, too long foreskin and
similar reasons leading towards too rapid ejaculation). To cure premature ejaculation one may
seek out a TCM doctor and then persist in rebooting and health cultivation, active exercises.
The issue of premature ejaculation will in this way slowly alleviate itself.

[Dorsal nerve severance treatment]

Dorsal nerve severance operation is renowned in the premature ejaculation sphere, almost
everybody who is troubled by premature ejaculation knows about this procedure. There are
actually many shenanigans with this procedure.

Feedback 1: I have undergone dorsal nerve severance operation but still I can only last for a
short time, what’s the matter? I’m 24, previously my body was in an excellent condition, I did my
operation in Chi Feng Xie He hospital.

Feedback 2: After I did dorsal nerve severance operation I was not able to achieve an erection,
nor do I have morning erection. Is it because they have cut too much? What do I do if it is all cut
out?

Page | 198
Feedback 3: Because of masturbation I have premature ejaculation. A while ago I did dorsal
nerve severance operation in Zheng Gui hospital, why is it that I still have premature ejaculation?
I still have the symptoms, how can I become completely healed? Do I need another operation?

Feedback 4: Hope that you can provide me with some guidance during your busy schedule. My
situation is as follows: due to illness in 2012 I have randomly sought out doctors, I was tricked
into doing the dorsal nerve severance operation by the main doctor of the urological department.
Today is the 19th day since the operation, lately I have always had the urge to get an erection
but I was unable to achieve it. Right now I’m very worried and I don’t know if this situation is
normal. What should I do? Prior to the operation, my erection functioned very well, at the
slightest stimulation I was able to have an erection. If the operation has led to impotence, is this
curable?

Feedback 5: Now that I have undergone dorsal nerve severance operation, why is it that I still
have premature ejaculation? I discovered the symptoms of premature ejaculation 2 years ago, I
have since tried to cure it without avail. At the hospital it was determined that my glans was too
sensitive, there was inflammation in my prostatitis and also in the mycoplasma.

Some hospital has even promised that the operation will completely cure premature ejaculation,
but the reality is not like this. I have found a problem and that is many doctors like to discuss
things in terms of sensitivity, they want you to have an operation, they want you to go through
different diagnosis, this kind of situation occurs quite a lot in male hospitals. Behind the scenes,
there are personal interests at play. Of course, I have also seen doctors with consciences
saying that using dorsal nerve severance operation to cure premature ejaculation is wrong. This
is because should the procedure fail, treating premature ejaculation in the future will be more
difficult and even have the chance of inducing impotence. I believe these doctors for sure have
received vast amounts of kickback related to the surgical patient, this results in many people
going through different operations without any effects. This is the hard truth! Therefore, if there
are brothers considering this operation, consider it with care at all cost!

[The relationship between sensitivity and kidney deficiency]

The degree of glans sensitivity is actually related to kidney deficiency. When masturbation has
damaged the essences to a certain degree, the glans will become very sensitive. Many brothers
have reported that in the beginning they were able to masturbate just fine, later on, they became
more sensitive with the session becoming shorter and shorter.

[Premature ejaculation in masturbation versus love making]

Some brothers would ask if I have premature ejaculation during masturbation, would it also
happen to me during lovemaking. Many experienced people have said that premature
ejaculation during masturbation is not a problem, during love making this would no longer occur.
With regards to the issue of, the answer should be: it is not certain.

Some people have premature ejaculation during masturbation but it is more severe when they
make love, because one tends to get nervous or is already accustomed to premature
ejaculation, this would make it possible to prematurely ejaculate every time during lovemaking.
Although some people have the inclination to prematurely ejaculate during masturbation, this is
not necessarily the real form of premature ejaculation, because some people like stimulation

Page | 199
during masturbation, they prefer to get it done with quickly, their constitution is still good and
have not sustained enough damage to warrant true premature ejaculation.

Therefore the correct answer is: it is not certain! Because people are different, one needs to
look at the degree of essence damage.

[Misconception nr 1: taking supplements and using spray medicine]

Impotence and premature ejaculation are actually self-preserving signals of the body. If one
relies on taking medicines in order to indulge sexually, then the body will become progressively
worse, the body will truly collapse, when the time arrives, even taking supplements will have no
effect. Brothers who have taken supplemental medicines will know that in the beginning, the
effect is quite good, upon increasing the dosage there will be no effect, abusing yang
strengthening medicine is not desirable. In addition, some brothers like to use spray medicine to
delay the time, this will make the penis numb and prolong the time, this very much drains the
body, indulging like this will leave great hidden damage for the health.

[Misconception nr 2: use the second time to prolong the time]

Some brothers like to first masturbate for a release, this will then prolong the time for the second
time. A certain prolonging effect can be obtained this way but consecutively ejaculating for 2
times seriously damages the body, the chance of running into symptoms will be very high, this is
not desirable.

[Rebooting is the foundation for curing premature ejaculation]

The recovery from premature ejaculation is a slow process, one cannot expect to get better by
taking a few medicines. If you do not know how to reboot and cultivate kidney qi, then
premature ejaculation will cause huge troubles for you. By wasting yourself before marriage,
future relationship with the wife will be affected, one’s self-confidence will also be severely
affected. Therefore, we must persist in ridding ourselves from the evil habit of masturbation,
properly cultivate until the body is fully well. To all cost avoid leaking while simultaneously taking
supplemental medicine, one can never get well that way.

[Premature ejaculation recovery]

1. Get rid of smoking and alcohol to the greatest extent, avoid spicy stimulants.
2. Moderation in diet, rhythmic resting schedules, pay attention to emotional management.
3. Active treatment may induce various illnesses that are related to premature ejaculation such
as prostatitis etc.
4. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, do lots of aerobic exercises, do not stay up during the night
and sit for a long duration at a time.
5. Moderate strength exercises may promote the recovery of premature ejaculation.
6. Choose a method of health cultivates that suits oneself such as standing qigong, Eight
Brocade qigong etc.
7. No leakage as the supplement, conquer masturbation and sexual fantization, strictly control
the frequency of nocturnal emissions.

Page | 200
[Premature ejaculation recovery time]

Many people have a long history of damaging their essence, to recover from premature
ejaculation will be very slow. Normally, the recovery time will take at least half a year given that
one is rebooting and health cultivating, severe cases will require over a year of time. According
to the experiences of the veteran brothers in the forums, they all say that it takes at least a year
to recover. One needs to do well in rebooting, health cultivation, active treatment and exercises
in order to recover optimally.

Final summary:

There is a term called “financial management”, there is a type of role called “financial
management consultant”. Actually the kidney essences in our body will also require
management. You will need to study the way to cultivate the health and rebooting knowledge
and become your own “essence management consultant”. One must completely get rid of the
evil habit of masturbation, properly manage one’s kidney essence. Kidney essence is the body’s
great energy, one must properly care for it. We should save the best of us for after marriage,
one must by all means not be blind, ignorant, impulsive, overdraf our essence like crazy before
getting married, becoming wasted after marriage. It is mutually embarrassing when premature
ejaculation occurs, some women will even cheat on you, affecting the harmony of the family.

In this season I will continue to recommend 5 books:

1. [宽心], written by Master Hsing Yun. In seclusion from the society, one ought to have the
correct mindset, in living within the society, one ought to act correctly. Master Hsing Yun uses
the essential Buddhist teachings as the foundation, he expounds upon worldly and societal
matters and people, namely on life outlook, wealth outlook, love and marriage, household
education, interpersonal relationships and success motivation. Hsing Yun pierces through
troubles and points towards the happiness in the unrestrained life of introspection, cleansing like
the clear morning dew, able to see the world accurately, allowing beautiful kindness into
people’s hearts. This book has been recommended to me by a brother. After reading it I also
liked it very much, there is also an audio version available online. A very good book with lots of
inspiration.

2. [Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor], many brothers should be familiar with this book, this
equivalent to the Bible in the field of TCM, it is a work that cannot be studied enough during a
lifetime. The damaging effects on the body from the indulgence in sexual debauchery and
premature aging due to indulgence is mentioned In the first chapter of the Inner Canon of the
Yellow Emperor. I have discovered that every TCM book mentions cases on the damaging
effects of indulgences in sexual debauchery. Ancestors will not trick their own offsprings. In
studying the experiences from our predecessors can we see more clearly and reboot better.

3. [临证指南医案], written by the famous doctor 叶天士. I like this book very much, the doctor
叶天士 is also very legendary and has a special character. I have seen movies about him, his
medical cases are worth a look. In addition, his [秘本种子金丹] is also very good, everyone may
have a look. Those brothers who have gone through sperm diagnosis should know the concept
of grade A sperm. We must learn to cultivate the sperm, allowing the quality of our sperm to
maintain at a high level, the standard of prenatal and postnatal care may be reached in this way.

4. [彻底把经络穴位说清楚], written by 萧言生. In the aspect of meridian and acupoint cultivation,
this book has great benefits to impart. I have read this book relatively early, until today I still
browse in it often, I like it very much, benefiting from educating, reviewing the old in order to
learn the new.

5. [王鸿谟自诊祛病法], complexion diagnosis in TCM is profound without end. If you observe


carefully, the facial complexion of a person is constantly undergoing subtle changes, the face is
the mirror of the five viscera. These subtle changes is reflecting the changes in your internal
organs. Following masturbation, the face easily becomes dull and without luster, oil easily
breaks out. There is really lots of information that is reflected from the face, I recommend
everybody may research into this book. This book is the popular version of the first method
“complexion observation” in the four diagnostic methods in TCM. The diagnostic method of
complexion observation has died out long ago and is on the verge of extinction. 王鸿谟 has over
40 years of experience in systematic exploring and clinical practice, rebuilding and reaching
towards perfection. He has invented the 3 levels of complexion determination in order to
accurate self-diagnose symptoms for the entire body. TCM has created four different methods
of observing illnesses that’s called looking, listening, asking and feeling the pulse: looking uses
the eyes to look, listening uses the ears to listen, asking uses the mouth to ask, feeling the
pulse use the fingers to feel, in combination they are called looking, listening, asking and feeling
the pulse. The method that is praised the most amongst the 4 methods is “looking”, therefore,
the 4 diagnostic methods have been appraised in the very early TCM book [难经] where it is
said “looking and thereby understands the cause of the illness, one is a divine doctor”, known by
simply looking is the highest state of TCM diagnosis.

Season 35 [Soaring Eagle experience: the recovery pattern, medical
fees, guide for recovery from chronic prostatitis]

Foreword:

The formula for rebooting success = higher awareness + strong vigilance. I hope that everyone
is persistent in studying rebooting articles in addition to raising vigilance. Try to avoid alcohol at
all cost for alcohol invites lust. After drinking the level of determination will be non-existent
which easily leads to relapses. In TCM it is mentioned that sexual debauchery combined with
alcohol consumption greatly damages the body, therefore, avoid alcohol at all cost.
Many brothers have relapsed due to drinking alcohol, I will again emphasize it here in order to
capture everybody’s attention. In addition, one also needs to raise the vigilance after taking
traditional Chinese medicine, this is because many medicines will have the property of inducing
desire which leads to relapses.

I have discovered a pattern when reading through the cases of late; many brothers are not
seriously damaged and therefore they are not rebooting firmly enough. Small crisis in the body
induces small efforts of restraint, big crisis induces big efforts of restraint. Many brothers’
determination is not big enough, this is actually intricately connected with their experience of
symptoms. Brothers whose essences are seriously damaged will have an easier time of being
greatly determined to reboot because he knows that if he does not reboot he is finished. Many
symptoms that are induced by masturbation cannot be treated in the hospitals, only by being
persistent in rebooting is there the hope of making a true recovery.
Brothers who have sustained heavy damage have an easier time of entering the state of
quietude in order to study rebooting articles. Because he has deep experiences before studying
rebooting articles, his level of comprehension will be greater.

In addition, brothers who have sustained heavy damage regards rebooting articles as
“life-saving straw”, therefore, they are in a better position compared to regular brothers.

In contrast, many brothers have not sustained a heavy injury, they have not experienced many
symptoms and have never really become afraid following masturbation, they are only seeking a
balance between relapses and masturbation and so are not ruthless in rebooting. These
brothers are like frogs in the boiling pot, swimming comfortably in the lukewarm waters. What
awaits him is nothing but calamity, only that he has not realized that symptoms are waiting for
him not far away. As long as he indulges in himself he will approach that critical point of
symptom eruption, once past that critical point the symptoms will come out to harass him. If this
person has a certain level of awareness and good karma, he will surely awaken immediately,
just like the frog who has been awakened by the hot water. When the water is still lukewarm,
when you are explaining the harmful effects to him is like casting pearls before the swine. The
ignorant person does not fear, he will not retrace his steps until he has hit the wall, this is
perhaps the weakness of human nature. I frequent the rebooting forums, indeed I have seen
many cases of “sudden awakening”, one
could say that they appear once in every couple of days, sometimes they appear daily. In a
nutshell, one can say that they have become afraid to masturbate. Upon continuing indulgences
and after passing that critical point, all symptoms will come out, frightening him to death, life will
be under deep distress. Only then will he be determined to reboot because he has realized that
if he does not stop now he will be finished, he has already been pushed to the edge of the cliff
by the symptoms, if he does not stop now he will reach self-destruction. People who are truly

Page | 203
wise will realize the danger of masturbation through ceaseless studying, they are not forced to
the realization by the emergence of symptoms. However, wise people are always few in number,
I admit that I was not wise when I started to reboot, only after becoming miserable by the
symptoms did I become greatly determined to reboot. The saying goes of learning from one’s
mistakes, wise people will be able to learn from other people’s mistakes. Therefore, I advocate
reading more cases, by looking at more cases will one foresee the consequences from self-
indulgence, from there one is in a better position to alert oneself.

In rebooting, there are 3 types of people:


1. Determines to reboot before the appearance of symptoms: people of high realization.
2. Starts to reboot once symptoms start to appear: people of medium realization.
3. Still not awake even though symptoms have already appeared: people of low realization.

In terms of rebooting, we should all be people of high realization, be a wise person. We should
foresee the serious symptoms before they appear, seeking luck and avoiding calamity in the
process.

If a wise person tells you that you will have neurosis if you masturbate for 10 more times, would
you still dare to masturbate? Look at more cases and you will become your own wise person.

In the below I still share 2 cases:

1. [Teacher, during the past weeks I would suddenly wake up in the middle of the night, I’m
totally helpless, I would like to ask what is wrong. Previously this has never happened to me, I
lean towards a vegetarian diet and prioritize slow jog as exercise, I go to bed at around 11,
before I do so I would drink some milk and eat some bread and biscuits, where has it gone
wrong?]

Answer: There are many reasons which contribute to sleeping problems, I would advise you to
sleep earlier during the evening. Try to avoid sweating a lot when you are jogging, he who
sweats loses essence. Too much sweating injures the body and will also affect the quality of
sleep. Of course, when these kinds of problem appear, it is also related to the season. I advise
you to cultivate quietness during the evening, you may do health cultivation qigong, keep on
fighting!

Analysis: Health cultivation advocates “no leaking through the skin” during the winter season,
avoid a large amount of sweating, minor sweating is fine for young people. Many brothers
have not realized the importance of sweating, they know that exercise is beneficial to the
recovery of the body and so they exercise and sweat a lot every day, in doing so, the body will
also gradually weaken. It is also not advised to sweating a lot by soaking the feet in hot water
every day. TCM talks about the slowing of decay through movement and the raising of yang
through movement, but specifically, on how to move and how much to move, there are things to
be particular about in these topics. The saying goes that too much is as bad as not enough. If
too much exercise is at hand, the body will also become negatively affected. The specific
intensity of the exercise may be adjusted based upon the reaction of the body. The intensity is
not fixed and may be adjusted according to one’s own physical reactions. If you feel very tired
after exercising and the body does not recover well, it means that the intensity is a bit high. If on
the next day you feel the Spirit be very good, then the intensity is about right. The intensity may
be adjusted at any time according to one’s own physical reactions. Slowly, through trial and
error, you will gradually get to know how much exercise is suitable for yourself and what is most

Page | 204
suitable to one’s health. Since ancient times, medicines have been passed on but not the level
of intensity, few people are aware of the intensity, it can only be known through many
experiments by the self. Let us become sensitive exercisers and not blind ones.

2. [Hello, I’m 31 years old, I have been masturbating for over a decade. Although married, I
continue to masturbate. Previously I have suffered from poor memory, poor concentration, very
oily head and hair, easily fatigued, hesitation in doing things, hunchback, easily anxious,
engaging in fantasies, premature ejaculation, serious sexual fantization. But I was not aware of
the danger from masturbation, I have even purchased sex. A month ago I started to get a
severe headache, tinnitus and a feeling of disgust, this is followed by dryness in the eyes,
discomfort in the throat, heavy chest with shortness of breath, pain in the hands and the feet. I
have even quit my job. These symptoms are more pronounced during the evenings. Afterward,
the symptoms became better, I have found a TCM doctor for treatment. Now I’m eating
reasonably, I jog daily during the mornings, in the evenings I take a walk, I take TCM medicine
and eat fruits, my diet is also quite light! But in recent days my stomach is not firm with the
presence of light pain, sometimes to the left side and sometimes to the right side, sometimes at
the navel, all in all in the vicinity. Every day the pain would occur several times and then
disappear on its own, not sure what the cause is? How long will it take for my body to recover?
How should I live my sex life? I’m married after all! Thanks!]

Answer: yes, one can consider that your symptoms are showing signs of neurosis, autonomic
disorders can also be considered. Masturbation will injure the nerves, you may take a look at
season 30, it talks about neurosis. The pain that you are experiencing is moving pain, I have
also experienced this. Normally, it will take over a year of rebooting and health cultivation to
recover from neurosis. I recommend you to properly repent and then vow to reboot, otherwise, it
will be very difficult to recover from the symptoms. Taking TCM medicine alone is not sufficient.
Now that you have been injured to such a degree, I recommend you to talk it over with your wife
and then begin to reboot and cultivate the health. Cultivate the health until you are completely
well and then live out a moderate sex life, otherwise, going after quick pleasure will waste
oneself. Because many brothers are not aware of rebooting and health cultivation, neurosis still
does not recover after 5 years or even a decade or more. Keep on fighting!

Analysis: This is a typical case. When neurosis appears it is basically like to be tormented by
ghosts. Many people become fearful and develop hypochondria, the personality will also
undergo big changes. People in the surrounding will have a hard time understanding his
feelings, only fellow patients may understand. You can imagine, a dozen or several dozen
symptoms takings turns in tormenting you, that feeling is not humane. Neurosis is a dividing
range for those suffering from essence damage, it is very destructive towards the body and the
mind. Many neurosis sufferers opt for suicide, many patients would use the following words to
describe neurosis “death is preferable to living”. Only those people with deep experiences will
understand that kind of feeling, death is indeed preferable to living, it is symptoms of hell. In this
week I have seen 5 brothers who have encountered neurosis due to masturbation, I think there
are more people given that I do not read every post. Among the illnesses that are induced by
masturbation, neurosis is one of the more serious ones. Brothers who have not had neurosis
should get to know this disease, they should remind themselves from time to time that if you
continue to indulge yourself, one day you will end up suffering like him. It is critical to alert
oneself through the lessons of other people. One should learn the lessons from the mistakes of
one’s predecessors. To wait until the emergence of symptoms is great suffering, it is very slow
to recover from neurosis.

Page | 205
We will enter into the main topic in the below.

In this season we will talk about the recovery pattern, medical fees and guide for recovery from
chronic prostatitis in detail, the specifics can be found below:

If you want to recover better, you should know about the recovery pattern. In the recovery
process of the body, there will emerge symptoms of withdrawal, repeated symptoms and other
forms of issues, you should know these through experiences and studies. (Translator’s note:
recall that repeated symptoms is a repeat of earlier symptoms that one has previously
encountered as a result of masturbation, this is different from withdrawal symptoms which only
occurs when one has stopped PMO). Otherwise, many brothers will relapse as soon as
repeated symptoms show up. This is because they are still relatively ignorant, they are unsure
of themselves when it comes to issues that show up during reboot. Once in panic and in doubt,
it is immediately followed by relapse.

[Recovery pattern]: Starts to reboot -> withdrawal symptoms (appears within a month) -> period
for repeated symptoms (appears after a few months of rebooting) -> persists in rebooting and
health cultivation (including active treatment) -> reduced frequency in repeated symptoms ->
approaching recovery -> recovery.

I have specifically talked about withdrawal reactions in my previous article. The emergence of
withdrawal reactions may cause rookies to doubt, but as long as they are given the reason

behind it, they will regain their confidence and properly reboot. Rebooting veterans should
therefore timely let the rookies know about withdrawal reactions and eliminate their doubt.
Repeated period, on the other hand, has been experienced by nearly every brother in their
recovery process. It can be said that repeated period cannot be avoided in the path towards
recovery, especially for brothers with a long history of damaging their essences. With a history
of damaging the essences for many years, to achieve complete recovery within a few months of
time is not realistic. The emergence of repeated symptoms during rebooting is also very normal,
this happens for instance after staying up late during the night, sitting down for long periods of
time, after being fatigued, after being angry, over-exercising, not paying attention to the diet,
following nocturnal emission, seasonal factors etc, all of the mentioned may induce repeated
symptoms. When these symptoms appear, do not be worried. Take care to rest and cultivate for
a few days and it will normally pass. I very much emphasize health cultivation, the more
properly the health is being cultivated the less chance it is of encountering repeated symptoms.
Slowly, you will realize that your health is becoming ever better, repeated symptoms become
ever fewer, you are nearing recovery in this way. Keep reinforcing the results in recovery and
you will be able to completely heal. Of course, once healed you may not become careless, one
must still persist in health cultivation. The human body will need frequent maintenance,
otherwise, it will depreciate very rapidly.

Many brothers are very troubled by repeated symptoms. What we need to do is to summarize
the causes, why do repeated symptoms occur, one must find the cause and take care to avoid it
in the future. This is actually a process of repeated trials, constantly making mistakes,
constantly summarizing, constantly avoiding mistakes, constantly improving in this manner and
greatly reducing the chance of encountering repeated symptoms. Do fewer things which
reduces the health and do more of those things which boost it, do more health cultivating things
and less health-damaging things. Slowly, the state of the health will become stabilized, the
occurrence of repeated symptoms will naturally decrease by a lot.

Page | 206
Knowing the pattern for recovery, one will then not panic in the recovery process. Especially
when symptoms repeat themselves, many brothers go in disarray which is followed by relapse.
Correctly recognizing the pattern of recovery, correctly recognizing withdrawal symptoms and
the period for repeated symptoms, properly reboot and cultivate the health, avoid factors that
would induce repeated symptoms. Slowly, the state of the health will become ever more stable,
the emergence of repeated symptoms will become ever less.

Those brothers who do not understand health cultivation share 2 characteristics in the recovery
process:

1. The rate of recovery is very slow, the recovery fails to meet expectations after more than a
year of rebooting.
2. The chances of encountering repeated symptoms is high, symptoms always comes back,
this makes us lose a lot of confidence.

I advise our numerous brothers to make sure to put in enough effort in health cultivation. When
the awareness for cultivation is raised, recovery will naturally be guaranteed, the number of
repeated symptoms recurrences will also greatly decrease.

Another sentence that I would like to share with everybody is this: during rebooting, do not
break the reboot no matter what happens! I have told brother 小龙, during the booting process
we will run into all kinds of problems, they will make us doubt, but no matter what, do not break
the reboot! When doubts arise it is only that we have not figured something out temporarily,
having a person of understanding to help us rid the doubt will enable our confidence to rise once
again.

Below we will talk about medical expenses.

When symptoms appear it is all about money, masturbation leads directly to the hospital,
rebooting is to save medical expenses.

I will first share 15 cases with everybody:

Case 1. I’m 21 this year and in my 4th year of university. Currently, I’m battling with my
postgraduate exam which is due in less than 90 days. In the past 2 months I’m weak and ridden
with illnesses, I’m severely kidney deficient, hair is falling out, all sorts of chronic illnesses,
chronic gastritis and cervical spondylosis all have come to knock on the door. Every month my
medical bill cost over a thousand RMB, I’m suffering from the abuse of illness pains every day.
After determining to reboot I have a relapse again and again, my mind is extremely dark and
depressed…

Case 2. I asked the doctor on how much longer I will need to take medication, he said other 2-3
weeks! In this week my medical fees have risen to 700 RMB! Out of that, 160 is in registering
fees and the rest is in medicines, really expensive!

Case 3. Look for yourselves on whether or not taking medicine makes the body worse off.
Medicines have side effects, doing different check-ups wounds the body. While doctors
nowadays often lack moral, medical fees are expensive, I have spent at least 30 000 RMB on
medical fees but the effect is less than from reading a few pages of articles from Soaring

Page | 207
Eagle.

Case 4. I have gotten a month worth of medicine for 1 000 RMB, it is truly using the money to
buy lessons. The consequences of masturbation are to enter the hospital. When essence is
depleted people are no more, this is not some painless moans from bored people. Too much
masturbation will induce mental illnesses! Insomnia, depression, anxiety, all sorts of symptoms
and ending with schizophrenia! So far, my medical expenses in treating insomnia, including loss
of working time is already over 20 000 RMB! A youth of only 22 years, going to the mental
hospital in order to fetch medicine, without even a girlfriend! It is really a huge failure! I have
nearly died due to insomnia depression! I hope that this great ordeal of an illness will alert
myself and change my life! Control destiny with one’s own hands! Keep on fighting! One way is
death! The other way is to cut out masturbation! Let oneself choose one!

Case 5. From beginning to end I have spent 10 000 RMB in medical fees, I have taken Chinese
traditional medicine for half a year. All in all, I have gone through 2 TCM clinics and have seen
4-5 TCM doctors, old TCM experts would charge 100 RMB per visit. The doctor felt my pulse
and right away said I had kidney deficiency, qi deficiency, spleen deficit and a whole bunch of
deficiencies. The doctor warned me that I must go to bed at 10 pm. However, I did not improve
all this time, although I now have timely meals, my weight has gone up almost 10 kilos. But my
body is not able to recover to its normal state, I feel very helpless. I don’t know when I will get
well. I’m almost at the age where I should be considering marriage, my body is still in such a
bad state. To be honest, I have let my parents down.

Case 6. First of all my memory has markedly deteriorated. If things were like they were before,
all it took is one glance or to hear once before I could remember everything. But now things
need to be repeated several times with even a chance for me to remember it. Another thing is
that frequent masturbation will increase the chances of catching chronic prostatitis! This is the
thread owner’s own experience… It is because the inability of the thread owner to withstand
temptations that he frequently masturbated, and so one day when he was doing a check-up at
the hospital they diagnosed him with prostatitis! And so he had to spend over 10 000 RMB in
treatment fees.

Case 7. I had masturbated for 10 years when I got married. You can say that my married life
was harmonious, only that there is a slight problem of premature ejaculation and sore waist
following ejaculation, but they are not serious, although there was no change as to their
frequency. Following the widespread of computers and the internet nowadays, it is easy to be
tempted by pictures and videos and so I frequently sexual fantasize. I masturbate once every 10
days. After having masturbated for 13 years I wanted to have a child, when I checked myself at
the hospital it was discovered that the vitality of my sperm was low. After having spent nearly 2
years of TCM treatment and 20 000 RMB, I had a healthy and lively daughter at last.

Case 8. After having masturbated for 5 months I started to get breakouts on my face, after the
6th month the breakouts were all over my face, on my chest, on my back, and on my forearms.
Moreover, I have employed all forms of treatments, all in all, I have spent over 20 000 RMB in
treatment fees.

Case 9. Reboot early, get well early, reboot late, difficult to recover, poor life with many
diseases and early demise! Since at a few years old I was affected by pornographic movies and
learned to masturbate. But at the time I did not masturbate frequently. When I entered puberty I
started

Page | 208
to use computers and started to masturbate frequently. Nowadays I have hair loss, easily
sweats, cold limbs and I’m very afraid of cold! My concentration is poor, my kidney deficiency is
severe! I have prostatitis, inflammation in the throat, lungs and stomach, frequent urination,
delayed urination, insomnia, depression, I have even thought about suicide. When I turned 19 I
determined to reboot. During these periods I have spent 20 000 RMB in treating prostatitis.
Whenever it is autumn and winter my hands and feet turn ice cold, masturbation lethally harms!
Both my dad and my granddad are warm all over their bodies except for me. I’m not even on par
with an elderly person, how can the eager me endure such difficulty?

Case 10. My history of masturbation stretches back for 10 years, I have even masturbated for
up to 5 times a day. I have had 7 years of frequent urination, urgent urination, incomplete
urination, I urinate 3-5 times during the night. I’m only 23 years old, I have never undergone
apparatus inspection, only having had my pulse checked. Now it has been diagnosed at the 民
营 hospital in Chongqing that I had chronic bacterial prostatitis. I have done the form of
operation where they stick a tube into the penis several times, each time it costs 2400 RMB for
a total of 5 times in addition to taking some medicine. I have spent 15 000 RMB without much
effect.

Case 11. Is premature ejaculation easy to treat? Is prostatitis not easily treatable? I have spent
20 000 - 30 000 RMB without getting well, there is no cure right now.

Case 12. I have prostatitis since 3 years back, at the time I went to 仁济 for treatment, I spent
almost 10 000 RMB from doing prostate ablation in addition to red light therapy. I underwent
over 10 days of intravenous drip, this was repeated time and time again, I was never cured of
the root. Lately, I had lower abdominal pains, I went to the hospital for a color ultrasound, the
result was that I had chronic prostatitis.

Case 13. Which male hospitals are good at Chaozhou? I have spent over 10 000 RMB in
treating prostatitis at 人民 hospital, it has since a month and I’m still not well, getting emotional
here!

Case 14. My chronic prostatitis was induced by masturbation. 2 years ago I almost recovered
after spending 20 000 RMB at the male hospital in treatment fees, now it has relapsed! If I only
rely on inflammatory drugs and Chinese medicine, will I get well? Im only 22, unmarried.
Yesterday I went to the male hospital and the doctor again told me that it was very serious, he
said something about white blood cells with 3 + and a lack of lecithin.

Case 15. I have had prostatitis for quite a few years now. I have been to Xian, Beijing and many
hospitals and have spent over 100 000 RMB! But nothing could cure me, I want to try Shanghai,
not sure if there are any good foreign-invested hospitals over there?

There is a very classical statement when it comes to treating chronic prostatitis: the money is
gone but the illness remains. This is simply too big of an insult. Doctors nowadays only cure
the body but not the mind. Good doctors should let the patient become aware of the dangers of
masturbation. Or else by letting you take medicine and become better temporarily, the illness
then relapses after masturbation. In this way, the hospital is making money but it is too painful
from the perspective of the patient.

Page | 209
In addition, I recommend not to visit male hospitals. Prostatitis is their main source of income,
once you enter you might be diagnosed with an illness despite being healthy, minor illnesses
might be exaggerated into something very serious. The way that male hospital makes income is
to first scare the patient, once you are scared then it easy to extract the money, a whole bunch
of diagnosis fees and treatment fees. One thing worth mentioning is all the new types of
treatment devices, they come in all sort of names and they are all high tech. One treatment
costs several thousands of RMB, squeezing money off the patient, several thousand is a small
sum, normally they will squeeze for over 10 000 RMB. It’s a pity that many patients don’t know
what has happened to their bodies, nor do they know what is causing prostatitis, they are purely
lambs to the slaughter. I recommend prostatitis patients to turn to the big standard hospitals if
they want treatment. Otherwise the money is being spent in vain, remember at all cost!

After reading the cases, everybody should know that masturbation induces many forms of
illnesses. Money does not have to be spent on prostatitis alone. After masturbation, immune
system decreases. Symptoms may appear with digestive, respiratory and nervous systems.
Even if you go to the big standard hospitals, treatment fees with being substantial, several
thousand to tens of thousands RMB is very common. Rubbing the penis is not for free, one will
know after having visited the hospital, what is being rubbed is not the penis but medical bills.

The latter of the 15 cases are about prostatitis, this should be apparent. These patients are still
in a state of ignorance, they have no idea of what’s going on, only that they should go to the
hospital for treatment but they are not aware of the root of the issue. In reality, prostatitis cannot
be treated, it will only temporarily heal, prostatitis can only be healed through cultivation. When
the symptoms emergence, one must learn how to reboot and cultivate the health. Rebooting
and health cultivation is the foundation to complete recovery, or else it is like building a house
on sand, there is no foundation whatsoever, it will collapse at any time. Sadly, many prostatitis
patients are not aware of this principle. I have summarized an experience: to truly recover from
prostatitis, one must first come to reason, failure to understand the reason, one could expect
temporary recover at the most. If one does not pay attention to health cultivation and does not
understand the importance of rebooting and essence conservation, prostatitis will very much
likely to relapse. The relapse rate for prostatitis is over 90%, everyone should know the reason
behind it. It is because the vast majority of the people have not come to reason whatsoever,
without a shred of rebooting and health cultivation awareness.

Quite a few brothers have reported the outbreak of symptoms following masturbation and the
inability to save money, opening up the money flow like opening a tap. Ordinary brothers would
at least spend several hundred to several thousand in treatment fees, some spend over ten

thousand, I have also seen quite a few cases of spending over a hundred thousand, especially
for neurosis patients, it is very common for medical bills to end up in the tens of thousands. For
some brothers, diagnosis fees alone is in the tens of thousands, not including registering fee
and medical fees. The money has already been spent, it is fine if the illness has been cured, but
the reality is that after spending the money and taking the medicine, recovery is not guaranteed,
why is that? Because he is still indulging, still masturbating, still leaking, not paying attention to
health cultivation. The efficiency of treatment via medicine is vastly discounted, the efficiency
can in no way be guaranteed. Unfortunately, many brothers still don’t understand this principle,
their way of thinking is to seek the doctor when there is illness followed by medication and
recovery. They have placed all the precious things onto the doctor, relying on medicine for
everything, relying on the doctor for everything, this way of thinking is completely wrong.
Without the rebooting and health cultivation awareness, it is very difficult for symptoms to truly

Page | 210
go away, the chance of relapses will be very high. Many brothers have become return guests of
hospitals, they frequently visit the hospitals but with all of their symptoms still intact, if he is able
to come to reason, the result will not be like this. Ignorance is very scary, it will induce foolish
actions. If you have come to reason, you will discover how outrageously wrong you have been.

“People worry about the many diseases out there, doctors worry about the few methods of
treating diseases” from [扁鹊仓公列传]

I think this is a very good sentence by 扁鹊, the doctor needs to understand a lot, being suburb
in his craft, high in medical ethics, only this way will he bring good news to the patient. I think
the “few methods of treating” is also applicable for the patient, 30% in treatment and 70% in
cultivation. Nowadays when many patients become sick they all know to go to the hospital for
treatment, but the importance lies in the self, the key is in 70% cultivation. After all, many
diseases are chronic and are not a mere cold, it cannot be cured by a few pills. Yet many
patients are in a mental state of ignorance, knowing and understanding too little about health
cultivation. If his symptoms are to disappear under these circumstances it is very difficult. We
should not put all our expectations onto the doctor, we need to become qualified patients
ourselves, a patient who understands health cultivation, God helps he who helps himself!

In health cultivation, the foremost is “treasuring essence, conserving essence”, TCM mentions:
when the kidney qi is abundant, a hundred illness is eliminated, when the kidney qi is deficient,
a hundred illness acts as bullies. To cultivate the health one must cultivate the kidneys, to
cultivate the kidneys one must cultivate the essence. The person who is well adapted to health
cultivation must esteem conservation! It is very sad when one does not understand essence
conservation! Taking in medicine on one hand while shedding on the other hand, this is great
taboo in treating diseases.

Lastly, let’s talk about a guide to recovery from chronic prostatitis.

Due to the request from a brother, we will again talk about recovering from prostatitis in this
season.

If chronic prostatitis is serious, one needs to combine with active treatment while keeping the
condition under check with medicine. Do not under any circumstance expect a complete
recovery from taking medicine, one may temporarily recover at the most. It has been said in the
rebooting forums that Chinese herbal medicine will be able to cure prostatitis, the cure that was
mentioned is an only a temporary cure. If you do not understand rebooting and health cultivation,
there is a high chance for relapses. Taking medicine in treating prostatitis is very important but it
is not crucial, the crucial part is “treating the mind”, let the patient come to reason, let the patient
realize the importance of rebooting and health cultivation. Or else by temporarily healing him,
many people will still relapse, this way of healing is actually a failure as it ignores the
transformation of thoughts with the patients.

In the below I will expound on the key to recovery:

1. Exercise. There are lots of benefits to moderate aerobic exercises, it may raise the body’s
immunity, promote blood circulation in the body, it is very favorable for the alleviation of
prostatitis symptoms. Brothers who have a habit of exercising will recover much more
quickly compared to those brothers who stay up during the night and sits for long durations
at a time. Naturally, over-exercising is not to be desired as it will induce a weakening in the

body’s immunity. Therefore, one must manage the intensity of exercise just like cooking a
meal, when the fire is too large, the food is fried or becomes too tough, it no longer tastes
good. Exercising too much will have the opposite to the intended effect.

2. Excellent working and resting habits. Do not over-fatigue on a regular basis, pay attention to
cultivating the Spirit, do your best to go to bed before 11 pm, my recommended bedtime is
around 10 pm.

3. Excellent dietary habits. Do not smoke, drink alcohol, eat spicy food. Eat lots of fruits and
vegetables, keep a light diet.

4. Avoid sitting for long durations. Research has shown, due to occupational reasons, taxi
drivers are among the group with the highest rate of prostatitis. There are many harms to sitting
for long durations, therefore, try to get up and move around every 40 minutes.

5. Avoid coming in contact with cold and catching a cold as much as possible. Coming in
contact with cold allows for the emergence of prostatitis relapse. When the body is cold, many
brothers would have frequent urination.

6. Do not hold in the urine, by doing this it is very much possible to cause an aggravation of
prostatitis. Some patient experience a sudden aggravation to their prostatitis because they had
previously held in the urine for a few hours while sitting in a vehicle.

7. Mood management. It is crucial to keep a good state of mentality. TCM mentions that the 7
emotions lead to illness. Adverse emotions may cause an aggravation of prostatitis
symptoms.

8. Moderate water intake. Moderate intake of water may alleviate prostatitis symptoms, I
believe that many brothers have such an experience.

9. Health cultivation practice. Health cultivation practices have a positive meaning for the
recovery of chronic prostatitis, one may choose a suitable practice and do it regularly. Kidney
strengthening exercises, standing qigong etc are all very good.

10. Keep away from the theory of needing to discharge semen at regular intervals. This theory
has confused many people, it has also harmed many people, even many doctors advocate this
theory. This shakes many peoples’ positions. In the sphere of prostatitis, this theory has
received approval from many patients but I’m absolutely opposed to it. How is the semen to be
discharged, through masturbation or lovemaking, the patient already has a weakened body and
yet still is to discharge semen, is this not making matters worse? Moreover, to glorify
discharging poison (Translator’s note: discharging poison here is synonymous to discharging
semen), this is actually an excuse for indulgence, have you really got so much poison, if the
prostate has that much poison then how are monks to survive? According to my research, the
reason to why so many people think that it is not good to hold it in, expelling is comfortable is
due to the inadequate cultivation of the mind. If the cultivation of the mind is adequate then
there will be no issue of holding it in. Holding it in is indeed not good, it easily induces
inflammations, sexual fantization alone will induce repeated symptoms with the prostate.
Therefore, when rebooting, we must pay attention to mind cultivation, otherwise, issues will
easily arise due to sexual fantization. Sexual fantization is in the invisible form of leaking,
essence leaves when the mind wanders, we must put a stop to the attacks from sexual

Page | 212
fantization. Of course, the bacterial form of prostatitis should be actively treated and not
alleviated through the discharge of semen. The temporary alleviation that you receives from
discharging semen will only sink you into the vicious spiral of evil habit. In this aspect it is similar
to taking drugs, taking drugs temporarily offers alleviation from uncomfortable feelings, but it will
only continuously hook you, at last, you are unable to extricate yourself, in the feeling it will
induce more serious forms of prostatitis. Therefore, everybody should have the correct
understanding when it comes to the issue of discharging semen, otherwise, the stance towards
rebooting will be easily swayed. Our rebooting efforts must be firm, determined and complete!
Abstinence without sexual fantization is harmless to the body, everybody must recognize this
clearly.

Summary:

Properly reboot and cultivate the health today, cultivate the body until it has fully recovered, live
out a moderate sex life post marriage, this is the correct path. Otherwise, by going through
treatment on one side while leaking essences on the other side, at most it will only bring you
temporary recovery. As long as you continue to indulge, prostatitis might relapse not long
afterward. Many people say that they have been cured, this is actually false, look at how long he
has been cured, as long as he has not clearly understood the issue of discharging essence,
sooner or later the disease will return. One must understand the importance of essence
conservation, low essence precedes diseases are real, it is not false! It is possible for prostatitis
to fully recover, the prerequisite is to come to reason, one must understand the principle, there
can be no error in the guiding thought!

I will recommend 5 books:

1. [觉海慈航], the reach of this book among Buddhist books is quite broad these days. It is very
good when it comes to instructing beginners. Inside there are answers to various kinds of
common questions. If you have Buddhist karma and wants to learn about Buddhism, I
recommend this book to you.

2. [犹太人为什么聪明], this is a book that I’m recently reading. As everyone knows, the group
of people that wins the most Nobel prizes are the Jews. The Jews is an ethnic group that with
an extremely strong desire for knowledge and strongly emphasizes a life with belief. Their
everyday actions are patterned by 613 monastic disciplinary rules, among the rules are also
strict commandments towards sex. The high IQ among Jewish people has a biological basis,
TCM: to the above, the kidneys are connected to the brain. Brothers with a bit a common sense
should know that masturbation or other forms of indulgence will lead to a great decline in brain
power. If there are lots of people who indulge in an ethnic group, then the average IQ of that
group will decrease.

3. [大道显隐:李经梧太极人生], with skills approaching the Dao, Taichi boxing is cultural


boxing, it is a form of boxing with a very deep level of cultural substance. I have studied the
theory of Taichi boxing and have found out that the famous Tachi boxers are all very
knowledgeable in the way of health cultivation. Basically, all of them have read I Ching and the
Inner Canons of the Yellow Emperor, they have basically mastered the health cultivation
theories. The three energies of Chinese medicine, health cultivators call them the 3 treasures of
the human body. These 3 treasures are particularly treasured among the famous Taichi boxers.
In comprehending this book, one may learn about the principles of human conduct as well as
the principles of health cultivation. Of course, one may also learn about the essential theory of

Page | 213
Taichi boxing, then you will discover that all of this is interconnected with rebooting, it will also
act as a good guide for your rebooting process.

4. [思考中医], authored by 刘力红. Due to the author’s passion and persistence towards TCM,
he has committed himself to the interpretation and research of [伤寒杂病论] as well as to the
research into hard-to-treat illnesses. In order to avoid crypticism, the author has strived to
combine scholarship with interest. The scope of the book goes beyond the research of [伤寒杂
病论], it is an example of the integration between case features and academic discipline. I have
read the book several times, in every read, there is something to learn. I recommend everybody
to have a look, opening this book will be beneficial.

5. [中医火神派医案全解], 张存悌 as editor in chief, the school of Vulcan is an important school


of medicine founded by the famous Sichuan doctor 郑钦安 at the end of the Qing dynasty.
Vulcanism is well known for its expertise in monkshood, it possesses a very distinctive
academic quality. Medical cases from 20 famous doctors are included in this book and are very
much worse a read. I have read this book relatively early and have come to like to personally,
brothers with an interest may take a look.
